CIVIC DESIGN CONMITTEE 
Project Description and Action Recommendation Form 



The CIVIC DESIGN COmiTTEE of the San Francisco Arts 
Commission, at its Meeting of Feb. is, i988 
reviewed the following Project and recommends action 
to the Commission as indicated^ subject to such con- 
ditions as may be noted. 

(1) PROJECT Design Guidelines for Open Space Improvements 

on Market Street for private office developm1p|^g3g(3) , ^ 
Dept. City — ^^-^ 



(2) PRESENTED BY Stephen Shotland, Blanning phone 558-6308 



(3) SITE LOCATION Various sidewalk locations on Market Street 
m) BUDGET 



from the Embarcadero to Ninth Street 



(5) PROJECT DESCRIPTION: jhe City Planning Code requires publicly 
accessible open space improvements for all downtown office buildings. In 
a' few instances, such as at 720 Market Street, a small office development 
may not be able to meet the City-imposed requirement on site. In such 
cases, the Planning Code permits the open space requirement to be met off- 
site, on appropriate publicly owned land. The Dept. of City Planning 
would like Art Commission review of a plan to permit open space improve- 
ments in the Market Street sidewalk right-of-way, in these circumstances. 

The project proposal includes an overall plan showing potential locations 
for open space improvements on Market Street, consistent with the Market 
street Transit Thoroughfare program. The identified sites would minimally 
impact pedestrian flow, and would provide small areas of seating for pub- 
lic use. The proposal also includes prototype design plans for the open 
space areas. A consistent set of paving materials, street furniture, 
landscape materials, and seating would be selected for any open space 
site selected for improvement. 

Once the overall plan for siting and street furniture, materials and 
finishes has been approved, the Department of City Planning would 
direct individual developers who can not meet the open space requirement 
on site to install and maintain the required improvement on Market 
street. The Department's ultimate objective is to get public open space 
improvements installed by the time the building is constructed.

1. Still in Design Development stage on all projects. 

2. It appears that the Mission Cultural Center will be only project 
funded this year, and that will only be a partial funding. 

B. MISSION CULTURAL CENTER 

1. Center has requested two changes in the plan: 
a.) Reverse direction of elevator exit at 2nd floor, 
b.) Increase allowable occupancy load at 3rd floor Dance Studios. 

Limited to B-2 occupancy.by code (49 occupants maximum). 

2. Anticipate Civic Design appearance in June, 1988 for Phase I update 
and Phase II approval. 

3. Funding projection from the City will only allow electrical service 
upgrade and elevator installation in fiscal '88-' 89. Anticipate 
further work breaking down into 2nd floor phase and 3rd floor phase, 
which ties in with Center's desire to continuously occupy the fa- 
cility. 

C. WESTERN ADDITION CULTURAL CENTER: 

1. This project is nearly through Design Development stage. Possible 
increase in occupancy of Vocational Room on 3rd floor to be investi- 
gated by Architect. 

2. Costume Bank will likely relocate here prior to a move to South of 
Market. This is to be verified by the Arts Commission. 

3. Anticipate June 1988 Civic Design appearance for Phase I update and 
Phase II approval. 

D. SOUTH OF MARKET CULTURAL CENTER; 

1. There is much Design Development left on this project. The Center 
is reviewing 4 design schemes for the Theater. Once a direction is 
established for the theater scheme, the entire project will be re- 
viewed with BBI for code compliance. 

2. Costume Bank will be assigned permanent space in this facility. 

3. Civic Design appearance for Phase I & II anticipated in July or 
August.

1 . MOSCONE CENTER EXPANSIO N PROJECT 

Mr. Ed Ong of the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency gave 
a presentation, focusing on three areas: 

a. the new roof configuration at the entrance to the 
Moscone addition 

b. the ground level treatment on either side of the 
Moscone addition entry 

c. the bridges. 

Redevelopment architects' newest plan shows major 
modification in terms of cutting back the amount of roof 
overhang in front of the new lobby for the Moscone 
expansion . 

Mr. Ong described the initial intent of the Master Plan 
as a mixed-use development with commercial, open space, 
and cultural uses all working together as a single entity 
The bridges are necessary to connecting the cultural 
buildings with the amusement/ recreation/ retail/ uses on 
the roof of the Moscone Convention Center. 



M I N U I E S - 2 - Civic Design Review 

17 July 1989 Committee 



The Master Plan always called for a second level bridge 
from Market Street, across Mission Street, through the 
retail commercial areas at the west end of the second 
block, between Mission and Howard; with that bridge 
continuing across Howard St. onto the other recreation, 
entertainment and retail uses on the third block, on top 
of the existing Moscone roof. 

Considerable discussion occurred concerning the issue of 
how the bridges and the adjacent structures impact the 
ground level access to the Moscone entrance. 

Commissioner Okamoto stated that the Arts Commission has 
some specific jurisdiction with the bridges, because they 
are over public area, but not over the other aspects. 

Commissioner Kriken summarized the feelings of the 
Committee, stating: " I think our premise will be that 
access to the Moscone is a major public concern. Since 
the lobby is a public facility, that's basically the 
premise upon which the other points are raised — how one 
arrives from the curb of Howard Street to the glass line 
of the lobby, and also how one arrives through what I take 
it will be a public park, the gardens area to, again, the 
glass wall of the lobby. These are things that we can 
test through the City Attorney's Office, but that will 
be our premise in considering those larger issues." 

Commissioner Kriken polled the Committee on its findings, 
with consensus on the following points: 

a. Pedestrian arrival at the entrance to the Moscone 
Lobby must be given priority. The current emphasis 
on bringing people there in vehicles is totally 
unsatisfactory and disregards the traffic crisis 
already existing in the City. 

b. The entire ground level environment suggests a dark, 
murky area filled with the sounds of buses, taxis, and 
cars, suggesting murkiness, noise and claustrophobia 
rather than grandeur. 

c. The design of the plaza does not reflect the quality 
necessary to a major public open space; this is a 
basic conceptual problem that must be resolved prior 
to any consideration of further design embellishment 
or art enrichment. The overhead bridges close the 
area in, blocking out light.

Commi ttee 



d . The lack of clarity, unity and definition in the 
overall design has to do with the way the land parcels 
are carved up among the those involved -- the 
convention architect, the on-line architect, and the 
theatre architect. Redevelopment must establish a 
means of getting everyone together to resolve these 
conf 1 icts . 

e. The priority in getting people off the roof, down to 
the main entrance to the lobby, should be a beautiful 
design way in which you take people from one level 
down to the other level. The current design is 
unacceptable . 

Commissioner LaRocca stated that he envisioned a major 
pivotal point where people would be brought down, stating: 
"Maybe it's an open well, maybe there's a fountain or a 
sculpture in there, whatever. But, the fact is this is 
kind of sneaking from one level down to the other level. 
That should not be done. You have to think on a much 
larger scale. I could see those two zones (the two 
stairwells) really being redesigned and being restudied, 
and that's an integral part of the bridge structure." 

Commissioner Okamoto summed up the planning history of 
this project, noting that the original design called for 
a much grander scheme for the plaza, but it fell 
by the wayside because of cost, primarily. The question 
remains as to whose responsibility will it become, and 
who has the wherewithal 1 to pull things together. As far 
as the process in general is concerned, the opportunity 
for a coordinated approach to it was lost in the 
selection of separate architects for separate projects 
with most of the motivations — at least for the Con- 
vention Center architect — being guided by the time 
frame and the commitment to conventions in 1991. Having 
participated in some meetings in which there was an 
attempt to coordinate and experiencing a lukewarm 
commitment to coordinating, he doubted very much that 
at this late date it could happen. 

Commissioner Boas questioned the necessity of two bridges, 
asking if one of them might be, practically speaking, a 
bridge to nowhere. She noted that planning a bridge in 
and of itself is not sufficient, what it covers over must 
also be considered. 



MINUTES -4- Civic Design Review 

17 July 1989 Committee 

Commissioner Kriken requested that Dennis Rumsey draft 
a letter expressing the Committee's concerns; to be from 
the Civic Design Review Committee to the Arts Commission 
and to the Redevelopment Agency, with particular emphasis 
upon finding some new ground to resolve differences. 
Mr. Rumsey said that he would forward a draft of the 
minutes to the Commissioners, from which a letter would be 
created . 

End of Discussion. 

Commissioner Okamoto left temporarily at 4:10 p.m. 

2 . Market Street Transit Shelter 
Design Review/Kiosks/Phase I 

Gannett/Lewis Lillian, Vice President and General Manager, 
San Francisco Transit Shelter Program 

Mr. Lillian presented drawings answering concerns 
expressed by Commissioners at the previous Committee 
meeting: 

a. equalization of column placement/roof mullions 
of the bus shelters 

b. profile detail refinement of cornice 

c. shape of the kisok roof /al ternati ve to pyramid 

d. clarification of kiosk placement relative to 
shelter/drawings indicating positioning 

e. greater visibility of Muni informational graphics. 

He reported that there are 26 kiosk/shelter locations on 
Market Street, rather than 33, as had been assumed. 
He presented a drawing showing placement of shelters on 
Market Street, 13 on each side from the Ferry Building up 
to the freeway at Franklin. 

Architect John Suarez presented a plan of Market Street 
showing the prototypical tree placement, relative to the 
kiosk and shelter placement. The height of kiosk has been 
diminished relative to the shelter, and a minimum cleanout 
space has been provided underneath. The dimensions of the 
advertising panels are 4' by 6'. 



MINUTES - 5 - Civic Design Review 

17 July 1989 Committee 

Two new cornice designs were presented, one two step 
version and one three step version, with a finer degree of 
detail. These new designs feature more of a metal 
vocabulary, as opposed to wood, which had been the 
Commissioners' preference at the previous Committee 
meeti ng . 

A new kiosk design was presented and discussed at length. 
This features a lowered, f 1 attened-out version of the 
original pyramid roof, and is 7' in height to the cornice 
line. The cornice detail has been simplified. 

Commissioner Kriken reported on the thoughts of the 
Commissioners as expressed in the July 10 Monthly meeting. 
Skepticism was unanimously expressed concerning the need 
for the third panel, encompassed by the bigger 
philosophical and ethical issue of trading advertising 
for 26 panels along Market Street, exclusively for Arts 
Commission use, and whether this benefit justifies 
building the kiosk structures. No one felt that enough 
information had been provided them about the general sense 
of street furniture along Market Street; they were 
ambivalent about voting on whether or not to build yet 
more street furniture. Given these concerns, the 
Commissioners voted to refer this item back to Committee 
for further discussion. 

Douglas Wright of the Mayor's Office summed up the origins 
of this proposal for the Committee. 

Addressing the concerns regarding streetscape clutter, 
Mr. Wright noted that the existing circular kiosks will 
be removed and replaced by the proposed three-sided ones. 
The current T Shelters will be replaced by the proposed 
shelters. The telephone booths will remain. 

Commissioner Okamoto returned at 4:25 p.m. during this 
di scussion . 

Mr. Lillian noted Gannett's considerable investment so 
far in public service contributions to the arts in San 
Francisco, totalling $185,000 as of 06/30/89, describing 
the shelters Gannett has already built around the City. 
(See attached) . 

Commissioner Kriken stated the Commissioners' understand- 
ing that Gannett's two panels/shelter linkage is a given, 
and that the City's art maintenance program comes out of 
this. He reiterated the issue on the table as the third 
panel , stati ng : 



M I N U I E S - 6 - Civic Design Review 

17 July 1989 Committee 

"Is It in the Ci ty ' s best i nterests to put 26 kiosk 
structures down Market Street , so the Arts Commi ssion can 
have ijts th_i_rd panel , or to go wj_th two panel s -- locatio n 
to be determi ned -- pi us a shelter. " 

Discussion followed concerning redesign of the shelter, 
e.g. should two panels be placed on it, and no separate 
structure be built. Alternative shapes of the kiosk 
were also discussed. A free standing two-sided panel, 
which would not disturb the present shelter design, was 
also mentioned. 

Lew Lillian exhorted the Commissioners to "envision the 
creative" coming out of the third panel, rather than just 
the kiosk structure. He described possibilities: In 
conjunction with an impressionist painting show, 
reproduction of several of the paintings could be placed 
in panels along Market Street, creating a living gallery 
on the street. In meetings with the arts community, 
underwriting a festival for local artists was suggested, 
and duplicating their work on posters to advertise it. 
He cited last month's Art Against AIDS exhibit as an 
example. He estimated that every third month, the Arts 
Commission would be given the panels facing the street, as 
opposed to the buildings, for greater visibility. 

Gannett would bear all maintenance responsibility, 
including twice weekly cleanings of the shelters. 

Discussion followed concerning the kiosk triangular shape, 
alternative shapes, vandalism problems, and the pros and 
cons of advertising panels on the actual shelters. 

Commissioner Kriken requested full-size mockups in order 
to understand more clearly what 26 kiosks would be like on 
the street. He requested more fully developed plans of 
Market Street, to get a sense of current street furniture, 
and also wished to view the extended 16 foot bus shelter 
with ad-cams on either end. Mr. Lillian stated that there 
are two, one at Fifth and Market, on the north side of 
Market, and one on Third Street, mid-block, between 
Mission and Market. Commissioner Kriken requested a 
drawing or photograph of both to present to the full 
Commission . 

Commissioner LaRocca requested that Mr. Lillian give the 
details of the economic return to the Arts Commission. 



MINUIES -7- Civic Design Review 

17 July 1989 Committee 

Mr. Lillian responded that Gannett would immediately give 
the City $50,000, through the PUC , to be administered by 
the Arts Commission, for public art maintenance. He noted 
thaLt til© Arts Commi ssion wi 1 1 receive t hi s mai ntenance 
niQIiey whether or not there are three panel s or two on the 
adverti s i na structure . This is not co nti ngent upon a 
three si ded kigsk_ structure . Should the Arts Commission 
decide upon a two panel arrangement, either on a separate 
structure or on the shelters, ad space will be donated to 
the Arts Commission on a space available basis. 

Assistant Director Rumsey noted that a public meeting must 
be scheduled around a planned group outing to view the 16 
foot bus shelters in the above locations, compliance with 
the Brown Act. This will occur after August 1.

ELECTRICAL SUBSTATION 

#31 Balboa diesel coach line 

Public Utilities Commission 

David Sutter of the PUC presented drawings of the proposed 
electrical substation. The PUC is electrifying the #31 
Balboa Motor Coach group in the outer Richmond area; this 
necessitates building an electrical substation to power 
the overhead lines. The site is located at 32nd Avenue 
off Balboa, on the southwest corner of Washington Heights. 
This project is scheduled to go into construction early in 
1990. A pre-manuf actured , pre-desi gned , standardized 
substation installation will be used; currently the PUC is 
doing the site-work improvement, planning, and design. 

The architect described the metal building as easy to 
camouflage with beige or white paint. It will be sunk 
behind a picket-type fence, painted tan, of split-face 
block pilaster. Landscaping of monumental trees and low 
shrubs will be planted behind the structure. 

Discussion occurred concerning fence height needed for 
security purposes, exterior lighting, and trees to be 
pi anted . 

The following Resolution was proposed for presentation 
before the full Commission on August 7: 

Motion to approve the Electrical Substation/ ADOPTED 
#31 Balboa diesel coach line/Phase I, II. 



MINUIES -8- Civic Design Review 

17 July 1989 Committee 

This approval was granted subject to the condition of 
planting larger trees in the rear, in 24 gallon drums 
rather than 15 gallon drums.

6. OLD BUSINESS 

Corrections to Minutes of 06/23/89; Kezar Stadium Presen- 
tation, page 3 . i tem c^: 

Regina Almaguer noted that the "proposed grid of columns" 
she described is actually to be placed at pier 7. She had 
suggested that a similar style of columns be considered as 
an alternative to the ones designed by architects for the 
Frederick Street entrance. 

Shannon Maloney wished to amend the last sentence to read: 
"It was agreed that DPW would develop a quick study model 
of the arch and study the Frederick Street entrance in 
sketch form. " 

7. NEW BUSINESS 

Commissioner Okamoto reported on the aquarium project 
adjacent to Pier 39, on part port land, and part BCDC 
District land. The proposal is to build such that 
a portion of a park, that was subject to approval, will 
be removed. Aside from the issue of whether or not this 
open space can be conditionally removed, is the question 
of whether the Arts Commission has some jurisdiction or 
not, and should be seeing the proposals, since it is 
publ ic land. 

Dennis Rumsey stated he would investigate the matter. 

8. ADJOURNMENT

1. UNDERWATER WORLD AT PIER 39^ LTD 



PROJECT REVIEW 



A brief history of Underwater World, an educational 
project, was given. A model and drawings of the proposed 
Pier 39 facility were explained in detail, and viewed and 
commented upon by the Commissioners. 

Commissioner Kriken stated that the focus of this review 
must be on the public park and proposed modifications. 

Discussion centered on modification of bus and truck 
loading areas, involving some displacement of current 
landscapi ng . 

Commissioner LaRocca recommended cleaner walkways for 
pedestrian movement in the park area. 

Commissioner Healy commented that the walkway/access route 
out on the pier along the water looked extremely bleak. 

Commissioners Kriken and Healy wished to know if there was 
any percent for art funding in the budget, and were 
informed that the funding is entirely private. 

The Commissioners passed a Motion pressing the redesign of 
the park landscape to develop the pedestrian promenade 
parallel to embarcadero. They requested to have a better 
detailed understanding of the planting and landscape 
treatment of the park, and they concurred with BCDC 
concerns that have been presented. 

Phase I, II, and III approval was continued until the 
September Civic Design Review Meeting.

MISSION 

Lieutenant Thomas Suttmeier explained the purpose of the 
kobans . 

Drawings were presented and a description given of the 
design and materials. The sides of the building will be 
corrugated stainless steel, to discourage graffitti, and 
rusticated copper will be used on the roof. A band of 
tiles will be placed around the roof trim, and around the 
base of the building. 



The architect stated that the style attempts 
ethnic design of the neighborhood, e.g. coppe 
made to resemble terra cotta. However, Commi 
the end result to be excessive, and they disl 
of metal to resemble another material. The a 
could be, in Commissioner Healy's words, "ove

CIVIC D ESIGN REVIEW 
COMMITTEE 



DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS/ENGINEERING/ KEZAR 
STADIUM/R EDE SIGN 

Project Manager Shannon Maloney presented a model of the 
arch proposed for the main entrance. Samples of pre-cast 
concrete tiles for paving design accents and drawings of 
proposed walkway designs were also presented. Ms. 
Maloney noted that proposed columns — should budgetary 
constraints dictate these in place of the arch — would be 
precast concrete also, for easy maintenance. Discussion 
of the proposal, with variations, ensued. 

Commissioner Kriken requested clarification as to the 
core package, and which items would be traded off. 

Ms. Maloney responded that the core package includes the 
field, restrooms, promenade and track. The alternate bid 
items are field lighting, the grade of the metric track, 
and the arch. The base bid includes Frederick Street 
entrance columns, and columns at the main entrance. 

Discussion concerned traffic flow at various entrances and 
night time lighting of these areas. 

Discussion also concerned handicapped accessibility ramps 
placement. Commissioner Healy suggested an art enrichment 
solution to make them attractive. 

Column placement and height at the Frederick Street entry 
was discussed. Commissioners objected to the 10 inch 
risers proposed for the stairs. DPW had not defined 
these as stairs, but rather as a seating area. 
Commissioners favored five six inch risers as a safer 
al ternati ve . 



Drawi ngs modi f y i ng col um n hei ghts wer e requested . 

Commissioners preferred the rougher, sandblasted concrete 
surface. An acid-etche d ti le sample was r equested . 

Commissioners stated a strong preference for the arch, 
but realized that columns at the main entry were a 
possibility. Commissioner Healy noted that if this is the 
case, then a paving design must be created that strongly 
complements the columns. 

Commissioners discussed ways to make the site distinctive, 
should columns be placed there. Commissioner Kriken 
favored a lintel on the columns saying "Kezar Stadium", 
recommendi ng i ncl udi n g cost for thi s i nto the base bi d . 



MINUIES -4- CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW 

08/21/89 COMMITTEE 

Shannon Maloney agreed to prepare sketches of a new paving 
pattern and lintel. 

Chair Kriken summarized Committee recommendations: 

a. Redesign of Arguello Street entry, with columns rather 
than the arch 

b. linear paving patterns rather than striping 

c. acid-etched tile sample 

d. stair cross-sections 

e. drawing of restroom redesign, showing elevation 

f. drawing lowering 20 foot column height at Frederick 
Street entry. 

g. photocopy of light fixture.

SAN FRAN CISCO FIRE DEPA RTMENT/JONES STREET TANK/ 
RESIDENTIAL QU ARTERS . 

Bob Nist, Project Manager, presented a site plan of 
proposed new living quarters, to be extended from the 
existing structure alongside the property. 

Commissioners expressed concern over loss of both symmetry 
of the building's facade and the green area, and inquired 
about the feasibility of building a second storey; 
creating a mezzanine within the existing structure; or 
constructing equivalent square footage onto the front of 
the building, moving the facade further forward. Mr. 
Nist responded that the first two alternatives are too 
costly, and the third proposes logistical problems 
necessitating splitting the living quarters in half, with 
a central corridor for heavy equipment access. 



MINUJES -5- CLVI_C DESIGN REVIEW 

0872 1 /89 COMMITTEE 

Commissioner Kriken suggested that, with occasional 
heavy equipment access in mind, one room could be 
constructed, minus the corridor, and furniture could be 
moved out of the way when necessary. 

Mr. Nist stated that this has all been previously 
discussed. One of the client's concerns is that in an 
earthquake, the fireman in residence would be safer in a 
structure alongside the property, with a sloped roof to 
deflect missiles descending from the tall building next 
door. 

Commissioners reiterated their concerns about loss of 
green area and building symmetry. Chair Kriken 
recommended continuation of Phase I and II discussion 
pending restudy of the frontal facade extension and an 
appearance of the client before the Committee to discuss 
any reservations. 

JUNIPERQ SERRA CLUBHOUSE RENOVATION 

Berry Von Hungen Groth, Project Manager, presented site 
drawings and described the project: Roof repair, alarm 
system, a new storage area, clubroom expansion, disabled 
access to the clubhouse and restrooms, lighting in main 
room, repainting exterior/interior, repair water damage to 
accoustical ceiling, add shelving, add bulletin boards. 
The side entrance will be deleted, with the kitchen moved 
there to allow an entry on the front of the building. 
The community has approved this latest design. 

The new exterior would be stucco, with all boards and 
battens, which are deteriorated, removed. A drawing was 
presented showing the new entry/restroom design. The 
modules of the windows have been broken up into squares 
wi th new gri lis. 

Commissioners Kriken and Healy felt that the Spanish 
motif of the newly designed entrance does not work with 
the Fifties Modern style of the building. 

Commissioner Healy wanted to know why the original side 
entry was being moved. The architect responded that it 
was too far from the Director's office, and people have 
the habit of bypassing it altogether and going around the 
building to the back door. Due to a tragedy, the 
community does not want this courtyard entry used without 
adequate lighting. Entry at the front of the building is 
strongly encouraged. 



MINUIES -6- CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW 

08/21/89 • COMMITTEE 



Discussion ensued regarding exterior entries to the 
restrooms being located so close to the main entrance, and 
the actual design of the restrooms. 

The budget is $150,000 for this project. 

Chai r Kri ken recommended restudy of the mai n entrance 
desi gn i n keepi ng wi th the ori gi nal character of the 
bui I di ng , prior to Phase III . 

The following Resolution was proposed for presentation 
before the full Commission on September 6: 

Motion to approve Junipero Serra Clubhouse ADOPTED 
Renovation/Phases I, II. 

8. PIONEER LOG CABIN 

The history of the cabin, built for the Pioneer Mothers in 
Golden Gate Park 1911 and added onto in 1931, was given. 

Drawings of the proposed renovation/repairs were 
presented . 

This project will involve replacement of damaged portions 
of logs and roof replacement with the addition of a 
diaphragm to make the building more seismically stable; 
replacement of the pergola in front of the building; 
addition of two handicapped accessible restrooms to the 
rear of the building -- about 45 square feet. The small 
kitchen will be expanded to accommodate community groups 
of 75-80 people, who will be renting the building. 

DPW is working with the few surviving original members to 
preserve replicas, photos, and other memorabilia in the 
glass cases as the art enrichment portion of this project. 

Funds for this renovation are yet to be secured. 

The following Resolution was proposed for presentation

Di scussi on/ti me-f ra;"e fcr new electrical service and new 
elevator, in conjunction with installation of heating 
system: 

Adolph Rosekrans of Rosekrans and Associates, v;orking 
with the Bureau of Architecture, presented master plan 
drawings and described this particular phase of the plan. 
The new electrical service must be installed prior to 
mechanical hook-up of the new heating system. The MCC is 
presently without heat on the third and fourth floors. 

Given DPW's schedule, ttiere will be no heating for the 
coming winter. The soonest the new system will be 
functioning is for the 1990-91 winter months. Robert Jew, 
Bureau of Engineering, explained that heating system 
funding was only just approved in the 1989-90 budget. 

Commissioners asked w^lether this process could be 
accelerated in any way. Robert Jew responded that since 
the electrical must be installed first, the time frame is 
subject to factors beyond his control. The bidding 
process will tak.e three-four months, and construction will 
take another six-seveti months. 




Commissioner LaRocca reiterated that the MCC has gone 
several winters without heat and inquired as to interim 
heating measures.

Mr. Jew responded that some funding would have to be

temporary measures. The Commissioners agreed that this is 
not financially practical. 

Considerable discussion ensued. MCC Director Juan Pablo 
Gutierrez expressed considerable frustration at his six 
years of attending meetings relating to the lack of 
heating at the MCC. He described his as the City's largest 
multi-disciplinary Cultural Center which serves many 
people. The cold of winter time causes cancellation of 
classes and constant sickness among the staff. This 
situation of promises to do something "next year" has 
worked extreme hardship on the MCC staff. His appeal 
to the Board of Supervisors to remove renovation and 
repair jurisdiction of the MCC from the Neighborhood 
Arts Program (NAP) and placed under DPW was an attempt to 
expedite this process and alleviate bureaucratic 
entanglements . 

Commissioner Kriken inquired as to whether the electrical 
and heating for the upstairs could be done simultaneously. 

Robert Appleton/Bureau of Architecture responded that he 
could not commit himself at this meeting but would look 
i nto i t . 

Discussion followed concerning consolidating phases of 
work, streamlining paperwork, temporary measures, vis a 
vis the overall master plan. 

Commissioner Kriken saw three possible actions, given a 
lack of understanding as to how things are channeled to 
the implementers : 

a. A motion to approve documents pertaining to the 

new electrical system and new elevator, so these may 
proceed . 

b. Bureau of Architecture should undertake an investi- 
gation in two efforts simultaneously -- temporary 
relief heating, and the long range master plan -- 
in the most fast-track manner possible, with next 
spring as a deadline. 

c. The issue of temporary relief heating.

DPW/Mission Cultural Center (Continued) 

Mr, Gutierrez reiterated his frustration at, once again, 
having to report back to his Board that the City is 
"exploring" ways of handling the problem. 

Commissioner Okamoto inquired as to some measure which can 
be taken to accelerate the bureaucratic process when a 
health matter is involved, as is the case here. 

The following Resolution was recommended for presentation 
before the full Commission on October 2: 

Motion to approve new electrical service and ADOPTE D 
new elevator for the Mission Cultural Center/ 
DPW design/Phase III 

Moved: Robert LaRocca 
Consensus: Unanimous 

Discussion returned to the temporary heating issue. 

Mr. Rosekrans restated that funding for temporary heating 
would only be money down the drain in the long run. 

Some discussion occurred regarding making approval of the 
master plan contingent upon supplying temporary heating, 
but this was rejected as impractical in the long run, and 
it was decided to treat these as two distinct items. 

Mr. Gutierrez asked Rudy Nothenberg, Chief Administrative 

Officer, if it is possible switch from one line item to 

another, e.g. to use carpeting and seating money instead 
for temporary heating. 

Mr. Nothenberg responded that this is possible. The Arts 
Commission would request a reallocation of that from one 
capital item to another; then, issue a work order to DPW, 
to determine the cost of temporary work, and have it done. 
He mentioned the possibility of renting space heaters. 

The amount allocated for carpeting and seating is $22,000. 

In response to questions as to whether this could finance 
temporary heating, Mr. Rosekrans responded that this is 
possible in a limited area of the building. 

Mr. Nothenberg stated that DPW will happily cooperate, 
but this project is basically the Arts Commission's 



responsi bi 1 i ty .

a- MQs_c_one Center Expansion Project 

Mr. Nothenberg expressed his desire for the 
Commissioners' approval of a small part of the 
overall Yerba Buena Project; the lobby for the 
entrance to the new exhibit hall underground, 
on the block between third and fourth and Mission 
and Howard Streets. He regretted that the 
Redevelopment Agency could not be present to make 
its presentation today on the bridges, as their 
design is peripheral to that of the lobby. However, 
He stressed the necessity of making his presentation 
today, as his agency must begin construction by 
November 15. He said that while the CAO's project 
is connected to that of Redevelopment, it is 
independent of it. The Commission does not obligate 
itself in any future consideration of Redevelopment ' s 
part of the project, by whatever it approves today. 

Discussion followed. Commissioners were satisfied that 
the element for which today's approval is requested is 
neutral with regard to various conditions that have been 
raised in terms of the quality of the overall environment.

3. UNDERWATER WORLD AT PIER 39 

Eric Patterson, project architect, presented drawings of 
two alternate landscape designs along the pedestrian 
promenade, addressing Commissioners' concerns expressed at 
the 21 August meeting. Scheme A locates trees along a 
traffic island and one row in front of and parallel to 
the building and the median trees; scheme B removes the 
trees from the median and places them squarely in front of 
the building, with a bare median and two rows in front of 
the building. Discussion occurred, with the architect 
stating two problems with trees along the median as being 
developing a watering system and protecting them from 
vehicles. Commissioners favored trees in three places; 
two rows in front of the building and a row along the 
median strip. Mr. Patterson concurred, favoring the mass 
of green that this would create. 

Addressing the issue of access at the front corner of the 
building, the building has been shortened and the park 
landscaping redefined in a cleaner design. 

More drawings were presented and discussed: street 
furniture details, an overall site plan, and elevations. 

The overall sight plan, and access to Underwater world 
were discussed. Several view bays protruding over the 
water have been added to the building design, necessi- 
tating eventual BCDC approval. There is also a new 
signing system of graptiics, and the entry gate has been 
moved. Second level access has been altered and 
significantly enhanced.

Commissioner Kriken emphasized the Committee's interest in 
the sweep of open space that extends along the entire 
embarcadero. The acorn light fixture, used extensively 
along the embarcadero and throughout the park setting, 
creates a uniform light necklace, from pier 35 to pier 45, 
and is extremely important in making Underwater World fit 
in . 

Commissioner Kriken clarified that Phase I and II approval 
only could be granted today, since the project does not 
yet have working construction documents, which are 
necessary to Phase III approval. 

Commissioner LaRocca stated that Civic Design Reviev-v 
occurs in three stages: schematic, design development, 
and construction documents. The latter, working drawings, 
are viewed at a later time to determine compliance. 

Commissioner Kriken stated the Committee's 
recommendati ons : 

a. Landscaping design of trees, as discussed 

b. uniformity of lighting fixtures for continuous

Discussion of graf f i tti -proof i ng and choice of surface 
finish occurred. Sand-blasting was preferred. 

Drawings were presented showing columns rather than the 
arch at the Arguello Street entry. 

Commissioners preferred the horizontal lintel to vertical 
lettering etched into the columns. The imperial attic 
was preferred. 

Drawings of the Frederick Street entrance redesign, 
correcting stair risers to five inches, and featuring an 
additional riser were shown, as were drawings showing 
restroom surface redesign. 

Commissioners felt etched sinage on the columns at the 
Frederick Street entrance should be removed, as it is 
unnecessary and esthetically unpleasing. 

The Committee made the following recommendations: 

a. Lettering removed from columns 

b. Horizontal surfaces sandblasted

Gerald D. Nines Interests/ James A. Morrison, 

appl i.cant 

Mr. Morrison described this pro.ject as integration of 
an existing historic building with an adjacent new 
tower, currently under construction. An encroachment 
permit is being sought, to enable construction of 
bronze lanterns on the project's exterior. 

He presented photos of site models showing approxi- 
mately 20 lanterns at several street level 
pedestrian entrances. Detailed drawings showing 
exact encroachment and lantern design were presented. 

Mr. Morrison gave a history of the original 
structure at 343 Sansome Street, designed and built 
in 1908 by John Galen Howard. The nev/ lanterns 
will closely resemble the two original ones at the 
main entrance. 



The development is a single project, with both buil- 
dings serviced by one mechanical structure and one 
elevator structure. The primary entrance is the 
original one, at 343 Sansome street. 

Discussion occurred regarding overall design and 
surface detail of the exterior surface.

b) Improvements/ Lei desdorff Street between HalJeck 
a_nd CaJ_i_fornia (adjacent to 343 Sansome St.. J 

Mr. Morrison described this project as closing a 
half block of Lei desdorff Street, between Sacramento 
and Hal leek Streets, daily from approximately 11:00 
a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to create a pedestrian mall. 

The plan is to pave the entire sidewalk with 
rusticated terrazzo material, approximating the 
fountain green granite used in the base of the 
building. The paving will have an accent pattern 
of different colors. 

The protrusion of Wells Fargo's underground vaults 
into the street precludes planting trees into the 
ground in this area. They will be put in planters. 
They will grow to about 8-10 feet high, in pots 
that are 4-5 feet off the ground. 

Pairs of cast iron bollards will be located at the 
north and south ends of the street. 

Discussion ensued regarding lighting, street 
furniture, and public access to the area. 

Commissioners Kriken and Healy objected to "dotting" 
the area with potted trees of such small stature. 
Commissioner Kriken noted a nice spacing of potted 
trees in another alley nearby, adjacent to the 
Merchants Exchange Building, which creates a sweep of 
green. He recommended the designer look at it prior 
to Phase 1 1 . 

Commissioner Ol;amoto recommended architect-designed 
newsracks . 

Ideas for the one percent for art requirement were 
discussed. 

Mr. Morrison mentioned a plaque commemorating 
William Leidesdorff, the Street's namesalve: 
a black hotelier who owned considerable property 
prior to the gold rush. He also owned the first 
steamship on the Bay and was the San Francisco 
Vice Consul to Washington D.C. 

Commissioner Healy proposed having an artist design 
street furniture.

The following resolution was recommended for presentation 
to the full Commission on 6 November: 

Motion to approve the initial concept of ADOPTED 

Leidesdorff Street Improvements between 
Hal leek and California Streets, adjacent to 
343 Sansome Street/Phase I. 

Moved: John Kriken 
Consensus: Unanimous 

The Committee made the following recommendations: 

a) Incorporate public seating into the plan, 

b) Drawings shovnng lighting and street furniture 
in greater detail, 

c) Elevation drawings showing height of trees relative 
to other features. 

2. Commercial Street Improvements/SOS MpntgpmerY Street 
Andrew Butler and Associates 

Mr. Butler described the concent of creating a 
pedestrian-oriented street in the 600 block of Commercial 
Street, between Montgomery and Kearney Streets. Three 
adjacent blocks have already been designed by Portman, 
and the idea is to have continuity in this fourth block. 
The design is an historical concept using traditional 
materi al s . 

Mr. Butler presented initial concept drawings .'Showing 
three granite bulbs, one at either end of the street and 
one in the middle. These would widen the sidewallv on the 
north side of the street. Into these bulbs would be put 
street furhiture, trees, and all of the major 
improvements. This has been approved. 

Street paving will involve a design with two colors of 
interlocking concrete bloci;. 

Discussion concerned delivery vehicle access and lighting. 
The architect wishes to use a light fixture that the

Department of Public V/orks says is extremely difficult to 
get bulbs for. DRW has out considerable pressure on 
Butler Associates to install a standard historic light 
fixture already in use throughout the City. The 
Committee agreed that Butler's proposed fixture was far 
superior and agreed to support it. 

More discussion concerned utility access during street 
repairs, and how disruptive it could be to the new paving 
system. Commissioners debated the use of brick versus 
interlocking concrete block. Architect Butler noted the 
latter was cheaper and easier to remove during repairs. 
Commissioner Olsamoto noted that if the material ceases to 
be used, then workers cease to be skilled at working with 
it, further hastening its obsolescence. 

Discussion also ensued regarding resolving interdepart- 
mental differences of opinion over the lamp fixture. 

Chair Kriken proposed sending a letter to DPV^ stating that 
the Committee sees no reason why the fixture, already in 
use throughout the City, should he viewed as a unique 
maintenance problem. 

Chair Kriken wished to extract from DPW a suggestion as 
to how they intend to maintain the street over time, 
possibly in response to his letter; the objective being to 
get back to brick by making them face the difficulty 
inherent in any material other than asphalt. The modular 
materials acceptable to the Committee are brick, 
baumanite, and concrete block.

3. Crystal Sprjngs Water Supply Project/Desi gn DeveJ op merit 
Reyi_ew/Robe_rt Rathborne, General Manager 

Assistant Director Rumsey stated, for clarification, that 
this is not a project of the City and County of San 
Francisco, and no City monies are involved. The project 
is privately funded. A portion of the project is built on 
City property. 

Mr. Rathborne presented site drawings and described the 
project. It is a water supply project for the city of 
Half Moon Bay, and a small unincorporated community to the 
north. It is comprised of a pumping station in the lower 
Crystal Springs Reservoir, a pipeline routed to a storage 
tank, and pipeline down to a water treatment plant in Half 
Moon Bay. The portion on San Francisco land consists of 
the pump station, intak.e structure, the pipeline itself, 
and the storage tank. 

The project is highly environmentally sensitive. It does 
not disturb the pedestrian trail system around the lake, 
and it was primarily designed to go under existing roads, 
with a minimum of 36" cover. The intake structure will 
be underneath the reservoir, and there will be no visual 
impact, except during periods of low water. The pump 
station will not be visible from nearby highway 92. 

Mr. Rathborne showed more drawings and described the 
project in greater detail. He showed the floor plan of 
the pump station, with interior and exterior detail. 

The pump station will be painted to match surrounding 
vegetation --- mostly live oak trees and poison oak. 
Plenum structures for noise attenuation are on the side of 
the bui 1 di ng , 

Discussion concerned choice of building materials, 
visibility of structures, and location of structures as 
they relate to each other, and as dictated by function.

Mr. Wallsten described his presentation as Phase I 
approval of the second phase of the project. The purpose 
of this stage is twofold: To increase the facility's 
capacity, the net output; and the ozonization requirement 
under the new rules and regulations for water quality 
control . 

John Toyota, Project Engineer, further described the site 
orientation of the new facilities and the major project 
components and their functions. The plant is not visible 
from nearby highway 280. About 130 feet down hill are 
homes in Millbrae, from which the facility are also 
hidden. The major project components are fourfold: 
Improvements of the raw water pumping station. New. 
larger pumps must be installed to lift water from the San 
Andreas Reservoir up 60 feet to the facility. The raw 
water will then be pumped uphill for ozonation 




The fourth major component of the project will be an eight 
million gallon treated water reservoir, to supplement the 
existing six and one half million gallon reservoir. The 
purpose is to double the plant's water storage capacity, 
along with its doubled production capacity.

1974. The building is an historic landmark, and the goal 
is to restore it as nearly as possible to its original 
condi ti on . 

The exterior stonework was severely damaged around the 
arches by the intensity of the heat. He described the 
problems and proposed methods of sandstone restoration 
and arch restoration in particular. He described four 
proposed methods of restoration. 

He also presented pre-fire interior photos of the building

inadequate to cover the cost of proper -- and very 
expensive -- restoration. Mr. von Hungen Groth expressed 
his wish to replace gussets in the ceiling of the main 
room and to replace column capitals, at a cost of $50,000 
Commissioner Healy suggested attempting to raise funding 
privately. There is interest in doing this. 

Phase I cost about $400,000. Phase II cost about 
$1,200,000, and Phase III will cost $600,000.

While replacing the shingled roof would be desirable, in 
keeping with the European cottage flavor, it enables 
neighborhood kids to climb on it, dislodging shingles 
which need constant replacement. A metal roof, if the 
budget allows, will be more practical and permanent. 

The wrought iron theme will be retained in the new 
hardware and hinges. 

Commissioner Kriken recommended exterior landscaping

PJ^cussj on /Market Street Master P_lan 

Sunnydale P_ump Station Project 

J.i IJ Man ton, Art Enrichment Curatoj: 

Dennis Rumsey introduced Public Art Coordinator and 
Curator Jill Manton to the Committee. 

Market Street Master PJan 

Ms. Manton expressed concern that various urban design 
efforts currently underway on Market Street not be at 
cross purposes with the Art Program Master Plan that the 
Arts Commission is in the process of commissioning. 

Since the Arts Commission will ultimately have to approve 
the canopy that Bechtel is designing for BART, Ms. Manton 
stated that they should receive guidelines from the Arts 
Commission, as well as an informal review, before getting 
too far into the project; and so that their design will 
not be rejected by the Arts Commission for a third time. 

She described the Market Street Site Profile, commissioned 
last winter for the Market Street Art in Transit Program, 
involving a cross-section of the Market Street community, 
e.g. artists, shopkeepers, urban designers, architects, 
bankers, etc. These people came to a series of workshops 
where they gave information about Market Street -- its 
history, use, architecture, characteri steri cs , problems; 
and how a public art program, in this context, could 
address all this. The results were compiled into a Site 
Profile. Currently, the Arts Commission is advertising 
a design team competition for the development of a 
comprehensive public art plan for Market Street. 

She gave Commissioner Okamoto, newly arrived at the Arts 
Commission, a copy of this Site Profile. 

Embarcader o Roadway Projec t 

Ms. Manton described the Embarcadero Roadway Project, 
under joint management of DPW and the CAO's Office; an 
umbrella for four different projects, for which she is the 
Arts Commission liaison to the Aesthetic Subcommittee: 
Muni-Metro extension, Muni-Metro turnabout, F-Line 
extension, and new light rail line. 

Design Professionals from various City departments serve 
on this Aesthetic Subcommittee. They will work directly 
with the consultants contracted by the City to design 
the entire roadway project. This Subcommittee will act as

a first "level approval /di sapproval for what the 
consultants propose. 

Examples of what the Aesthetic Subcommittee will deal with 
are cross-walk finishes, thicknesses, type and color, etc. 

Ms. Manton will meet with this Subcommittee weekly, for 
two hours. She will keep the Civic Design Review 
Committee informed, issue by issue. Periodic informal 
presentations will be given to this Committee by the 
Aesthetic Subcommittee. 

She gave a copy of the conceptual master plan for the 
Embarcadero to Commissioner Okamoto. 

Some discussion occurred. 

Sunnydale Pump Station Project 

Ms. Manton briefly summarized the history of this 
project: The Arts Commission had initially commissioned 
artist Patricia Johanson to work with architects, 
landscape architects, and the Clean Water Program to 
basically transform a mundane, thi rd-of-a-mi 1 e sewage 
treatment facility into an environmental work of art. 
The artist worked with State Fish and Game, the Department 
of Landscape Architecture, various community and 
environmental groups, and came up with a serpentine design 
involving the restoration of natural habitats, shellfish 
beds, tidal stairs, pathways, paving, landscape design, 
and seating. 

Arts Commission and Bay Conservation Development 
Corporation (BCDC) approval was contingent wholly upon 
the artist's transformation of this project into 
something unique and beautiful. 

In January, BCDC Design Review Board gave this project a 
glowing recommendation to the full BCDC Commission. 
Unexpected opposition came from the Audibon Society at the 
full BDCD Commission Meeting, who claimed that the 
proposed shellfish beds would take up mudflat area, 
destroying feeding area of migratory birds, in whose 
pathway this project lies. 

The Arts Commission and BCDC then agreed to bifurcate the 
project, approving the basic engineering plan, allowing 
construction to proceed. 



MINUTES -5- CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW 

11/20/89 COMMITTEE 

4. UNFI NISH ED BUSINESS/Sunnydal e PumpStation (Continued) 

The artist was told by the Arts Commission and BCDC that 
she would be given guidelines and parameters to redesign. 

Initially, $1,500,000.00 had been allocated for the 
artwork and landscaping, with .5 million contingency. 
Now, BCDC says the art budget is $383,000.00 and the 
landscape budget has been reduced to slightly more than 
$100,000.00, including the irrigation. 

Basically, something is now being built that does not have 
this Committee's approval. 

BCDC requires that the project first receive Arts 
Commission approval prior to granting their own approval. 

Ms. Manton stated that this erosion of the landscape 
budget, independent of what the artist designs with her 
reduced art budget, sends a message to other City 
Departments that you can get your Arts Commission Civic 
Design approval and if you need to, you make your changes 
and go ahead and build something else other than that 
which was approved. 

The Commissioners discussed pulling their approval. 

Ms. Manton stated that initially. Clean Water needed the 
support of the community, the Arts Commission, and BCDC, 
to get their project approved and underway. The environ- 
mental art and landscape design was previously necessary 
in order to obtain these approvals. She doubted that 
the art budget could be increased, now that construction 
is underway. 

$383,000.00 is 2% of $18,000,000.00, the overall 
construction budget. Landscaping and irrigation are 
deletable construction bid items that were added to the 
art enrichment budget. 

During her recent visit to San Francisco, the artist 
stated she would have been willing to eliminate the 
objectionable shellfish beds, and the Audibon Society 
stated that had she been allowed to do so, they would have 
withdrawn their objections to the project and instead 
supported it. 

Mr. Rumsey inquired about the application to the National 
Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to fund the project. Ms. 
Manton responded that the NEA disapproved the application, 



MINUTES -6- 

CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW 

11/20/89 COMMITTEE 

UNFINISHED BUSINESS/Sunnydale Pump Statio n (Continued) 

having heard that the project was in trouble and unlikely 
to win necessary City approvals. 

Commissioner LaRocca inquired about reappl ication to the 
NEA, as matching funds for City monies. Ms. Manton 
replied that this year's deadline has passed. 

Ms. Manton was instructed by Commissioner LaRocca to 
research the probable outcome of the Arts Commission 
withdrawing its design approval of the project; and to 
prepare a tentative resolution to rescind the former Phase 
III approval based on the fact that what is being 
constructed is not what was formerly approved by the 
Commission. The current landscaping and irrigation budget 
is inadequate for a project of this scale and visibility. 

Commissioner LaRocca stated the importance of getting back 
the original budget. 

Ms. Manton stated that BCDC could also sue Clean Water to 
this end. 

Jill Manton agreed to provide Commissioner LaRocca a 
copy of the approved construction permit, and the 
conditions thereof. 

Ms. Manton agreed to gather some additional facts for a 
presentation on 6 December, during the Civic Design Review 
Committee Report.

CALIFORNIA ACADEMY OF SCIENCES 

Revised Plans/Cowell Hall Porch 

Architect David Robinson, of Robinson, Mills and Williams, 
gave background on this project, originally approved by the 
Civic Design Review Committee and full Commission in June, 
1988: Enclosure of the front porch is part of the master 
expansion plan for the coming 20-30 years, approved at that 
time. However, upon reevaluating the structural viability 
of the various buildings, Cowell Hall was determined to be 
one of the most deficient. 

After the October 17, 1989 earthquake, this became a major 
priority. Proposition A mandates funding for seismic 
upgrading of City-owned buildings. 

The changes proposed today, on what was approved two years 
ago, are exclusively concerned with seismic bracing on the 
porch. Mr. Robinson compared the drawings previously 
approved with revised drawings and a model based on these. 

Mr. Robinson noted the planned relocation to the main entry 
of the dolphin fountain sculpture currently in the interior 
courtyard. He stated this will be a later phase, and is 
important as the singular thing that gives the building its 
needed identification. 

After brief discussion, the following recommendation was 
made to the full Commission on 5 March 1990:

2. DESIGN DEVELOPMENT/LEIDESDORF STREET PEDESTRIAN WAY 

James Morrison, representing Gerald D. Mines Interests, 
briefly reviewed this project, refering to Committee 
approval of the lantern encroachment/Phase I, granted at 
last October's meeting. The project involves closure of 
Leidesdorf Street during noontime, between Hal leek and 
Sacramento Streets, creating a pedestrian way. 

Commissioner Kriken wished to know the architect's rationale 
of the poles and banners. 

Mr. Morrison responded that this would better define the 
project from both Sacramento and California Streets. 

Some more discussion followed. In addition to obscuring the 
lanterns and squeezing the sidewalk. Commissioners felt 
there was not enough space for the banner poles and adequate 
street right-of-way. 

Part of the art enrichment will include a bronze plaque 
describing the life of prominent early San Franciscan 
William Leidesdorf. Dennis Rumsey referred Mr. Morrison to 
Jill Manton, Public Art Coordinator, who will eventually be 
involved with the percent for art requirement on this 
project. 

Discussion of the teak benches occurred. Commissioners 
expressed concerns about the high maintenance aspect and 
potential vandalism. 

Subject to certain conditions, the Committee made the 
following recommendation for presentation before the full 
Commission on 5 March, 1990: 

MOTION TO APPROVE design development/Lei desdorf Street A 
pedestrian way adjacent to the 343 Sansome Street 
project/Phase II. 

Moved: John Kriken 
Consensus: Unanimous 

Recommendati ons : 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 3 02/26/90 



LEIDESDORF STREET (Continued) 

a. redesign of benches with a wooden seating portion and 
concrete or stone supports, to reduce high maintenance 
and vulnerability factor. 

b. Banner pole placement at either end of space, rather 
than in front of building, so as not to conflict with 
lanterns, thereby obviating a traffic hazard and 
narrowing of the walkway between the poles and the 
bui 1 di ng . 

c. Place bollards to enable access of emergency vehicles. 

d. Check with DPW on placement of planters, to avoid 
narrowing of walkway between them and building. 

e. Examine Belden Place and Buchanan Street pedestrian 
closures, vis a vis DPW curb requirement. 

BUSH/POLK PARKING GARAGE/STAGE II DESIGN REVIEW 

Gordon H. Chong gave a brief review of the Project. The 
number of parking stalls has been reduced from 143 to 132, 
by elimination of the basement level. Scale of the building 
is 55 feet. He described the way the design of the 
structure will fit into the neighborhood. 

The new design addresses concerns expressed during Phase I 
approval. The cap is now continuous and rounds the corner 
of the bui 1 di ng . 

The Visual Arts Committee has approved the concept of 
artist-designed metal grills covering open areas. 

Discussion followed concerning the color and surface design 
of the facades of the building. More drawings and a facade 
model were presented and discussed. 

A Graphics package for exterior parking and the retail 
spaces was presented. 

Interior sinage plays off the concept of 'Bush' and 'Fern'. 
The lowest floor will have a fern icon, with the upper 
floors having a bush. Colors will be used to identify 
floors. These symbols and colors will be used on all 
directional signs and graphics within the garage. Plaques 
will depict area history, immediate location maps, prepay 
booth, and directions. 

Discussion followed, with procedures outlined for sign 
approval and for sign maintenance. 

The interior lighting plan was discussed.

Some further discussion occurred on the Visual Art portion 
of this project. 

4. MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY/SAN FRANCISCO GENERAL HOSPITAL 
CONCEPT REVIEW 

Alex Bonutti of DPW described the project as a 185 bed 
skilled nursing facility for mentally ill patients who no 
longer need to be in the acute care setting, but are not yet 
ready for outplacement into the community. It will have a 
therapeutic function, enabling the patients to develop 
skills necessary for outplacement. 

The site, located on Potrero Avenue, will be the last 
building to be constructed on the hospital campus. It will 
be in a deco style, 7 storeys tall, with copper and brick 
trim. 

Drawings of the proposed building were presented and 
descri bed. 

A discreet and distinct adolescent psychiatric care unit is 
planned. It will have its own entrance, identity, outdoor 
spaces, classrooms, and parking. 

Entrance locations, patient admissions areas, and the 
situation of the buildings, as they will fit into the 
overall site, were described. 

The architecture will be in keeping with the style of the 
older bui Idi ngs . 

The entire building has been designed around a religious 
grotto of Saint Catherine's Home for Wayward Women, which 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 5 02/26/90 



MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY (Continued) 

originally occupied the site. Currently, the grotto is in 
disrepair and filled with graffitti. A statue which 
formerly occupied it has been removed for safekeeping. 

The percent for art portion of the overall budget is 
$350,000.00. 

Landscaping was discussed. The very old eucalyptus trees 
will be replaced, but the type of tree has not yet been 
determined . 

Vehicle entrances/exits were described briefly. 

The Committee made the following recommendation for 
presentation to the full Commission on 5 March, 1990:

c. Give a more detailed landscape presentation. 

d. Prepare a diagrammatic aerial view of the site showing 
how it is situated within the entire campus. 

WASHINGTON-HYDE MINI PARK 

Architects Darlene Jang and Wayne Barcelon presented 
drawings and responded to recommendations made during the 
Phase II presentation. 

Refinements have been made to increase the number of planter 
areas against the adjacent building walls. More greenscape 
has been introduced into the project. Portions of the front 
wall have been pushed back to increase planting areas. 

Reduction of play structure has been made at the north end 
of the site, owing to refinements of clearances needed. 

A planting plan was presented.

5. WASHINGTON-HYDE MINI PARK (Continued) 

More sitting areas for parents have been added along the tot 
play area. A continuous walkway around the park has been 
added, to enable parents to sit at the rear of the site. 

As recommended, night lighting for security will be 
incorporated and controlled, so as not to go off-site. 
Fixtures have not yet been chosen. Within the architectural 
walls, path lights will illuminate the walkway. Some 
discussion followed. 

Commissioner Kriken requested a more detailed planting and 
tree plan, with street elevation. He stated that from the 
working drawings viewed today, one does not get a sense of 
greenery associated with a park. 

Discussion was continued until the next Committee meeting on 
March 19. No recommendation was made at this time. 

6. NEW BUSINESS 

Commissioners unanimously agreed to place the Embarcadero 
Expressway decision on today's Agenda for discussion. 

Commissioner Kriken stated that this Committee might raise, 

for the Arts Commission, the importance of the decision to 

demolish the Embarcadero Expressway, and go on record with a 
statement about it. 

It was agreed to place this item on the Agenda for the next 
full Commission meeting of March 5, under Committee Reports, 
as an open question for discussion.

PRESENTATION: PROJECT TO DESIGN BART ENTRANCE CANOPIES 
ALONG MARKET STREET 

Jill Manton introduced design team member Andrea Cochran, 
and Bob Keenan and Bob Wood of Bechtle. 

Mr. Keenan stated that he and Mr. Wood are working as 
consultants to BART on the canopy enclosure system for 
Market Street BART entrances. He gave background on the 
project. 

Mr. Keenan and Mr. Wood showed slides of subway entrance 
canopies from around the world, with examples of designs to 
be emulated and mistakes to be avoided. Slides were also 
shown of Market Street BART entrances and exits, with an 
analysis of their present condition. 




Mr. Keenan described five design components: 

a) Sense of Place - elements, light fixtures, monuments, 
etc. 

b) Weather Protection - protect patrons and reduce 
escalator down time. 

c) Safety and Security - need to secure entrys from the 
top with rolldown door systems, grillwork. 

d) Integration with Market Street - integration with basic 
design elements of Market Street. 

Discussion occurred regarding these components and how they 
will address the problem of street furniture clutter, e.g. 
news stands, sinage, etc. 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 2 03/19/90 



I. MARKET STREET BART CANOPY PRESENTATION (Continued) 

Jill Manton stated that news racks have First Amendment 
protection and are beyond control of architects and 
designers working on public property. They cannot be 
restricted in number. 

Commissioners expressed concern about roll down security 
doors being adapted to the eventual possibility of 24 hour 
BART service. 

Commissioners made these recommendations: 

a. Visualize alternatives in relationship to kiosks and 
shelter designs already approved by the Arts 
Commission . 

b. Respect the artistic spirit unique to Market Street 
and avoid generic "international" design; challenge is 
to make the structure a work of art. 

c. Structure should be light, lacy, open, transparent. 

d. Make design clearly identifiable as BART entrance; 
must be distinguished from Muni. 

e. Roof line design should be asymmetrical, indicating 
descent, as opposed to symmetrical, horizontal Muni 
shelter, where people wait. 

f. Entrys should reflect changes in neighborhoods in some 
way; don't have "cookiecutter" design. 

g. How all the street furniture comes together as a 
composition is the most basic challenge of the project. 

II. PRIVATE: MICHELANGELO PARK PLAQUE 

This plaque will acknowledge various City Agencies, 
corporations, foundations and individuals for their support 
of the design and development of Mi chael angelo Park. 

Deborah Lerner of the Recreation and Park Department stated 
that the park has been constructed and that this plaque will 
be placed on the side of a building, honoring all those who 
made its creation possible. She described the park. 

Ms. Lerner introduced Nan McGuire, of the "Friends of 
Michael angelo" , who provided details about the plaque. It 
will be bronze, with pebbled background, and raised 
lettering. Styles of lettering were viewed and discussed. 

The following recommendation was made for presentation 
before the full Commission on 2 April: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the concept and location of the A 
plaque in Michael angelo Park, with full classic 
headings and condensed classic text, subject to 
approval of content by the Literature Committee/ 
Phase I . 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 3 03/19/90 

II. MICHELANGELO PARK PLAQUE (Continued) 

Moved: John Pvriken 
Consensus: Unanimous 

Commissioners requested a sample of the layout as it will 
appear prior to casting in bronze. 

III. RECREATION AND PARK DEPARTMENT: WASHINGTON-HYDE 
MINI-PARK 

Architect Wayne Barcelon, of Barcelon and Jang, presented 
drawings for this Phase III resubmittal. He stated that 
this will bring back the planting plan and render up the 
elevation, to give an indication of how the planting plan 
translates into the elevation. He also showed a precise 
plant selection. The greening of the street facade has been 
emphasized, in response to the Committee's recommendation. 

After discussion of the plant selection, the following 
recommendation was made for presentation to the full 
Commission on 2 April: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the Washington-Hyde Mini Park/ A 
Phase III. 

Moved: Robert LaRocca 
Consensus: Unanimous 

Recommendations: 

a. Increase container size for the Buxus Microphylla 
Japonica and Raphiolepis Indica from one gallon to five 
gal Ions. 

b. Reposition the lettering on the entry sign so that the 
open circle does not break up the wording in 
'Washington - Hyde Mini Park'. 

IV. COMMITTEE DISCUSSION - EMBARCADERO EXPRESSWAY DEMOLITION 

Commissioner Okamoto summed up the discussion at the last 
Regular Monthly Commission Meeting of 5 March. All 
Commissioners were in favor of the demolition, with 
Commissioner Rosekrans giving a qualified yes, conditional 
upon providing an adequate alternative that meets the 
performance of the existing structure. Committee members 
agreed that this would not pose a challenge. 

Commissioners stated a list of concerns that will be worked 
into a formal resolution, to be read during the Committee 
Report, at the April 2 Regular Monthly Meeting:

EXPRESSWAY DISCUSSION (Continued) 



1. A great city does not impose structures between itself 
and the waterfront. 

2. A city in pursuit of recapturing the waterfront for its 
citizens, and reuniting the streetscape with the water- 
front cannot support the continuance of a major 
structure which blocks access to it. 

3. All known reinforcement plans would render the 
structure more ponderous and wall-like than its present 
state . 

4. The waterfront as a resource can never be realized so 
long as that structure exists. 

5. The Civic Design Review Committee's mandate is to 
advance and improve upon the urban design qualities 
of the city. 

6. Nature has provided the city with a chance to seize a 
wonderful opportunity to eliminate this terrible 
eyesore . 

7. Even in the event of substantial reinforcement of the 
structure, public safety is not guaranteed. 

8. A creative and innovative alternative can be provided 
that meets the performance of the existing condition. 

9. Time is of the essence if the City wishes to act 
before Cal-Trans begins reinforcement work. 

Further discussion ensued regarding how best to galvanize 
other city agencies and the press to take a public stand for 
demolition, and who to notify.

Fe Bongolan, Neighborhood Arts Program 

Dennis Rumsey announced that New Business would be heard 
first, changing the order of the Agenda. 

NEW BUSINESS 

Mr. Rumsey requested that Fe Bongolan give the Committee a 
brief history of this property. Ms. Bongolan stated that 
this building at 1198 Fillmore Street is an historic, all 
brick Muni power station that has been under the Arts 
Commission's purview since the mid 1970's, and designated 
for community use. This has not been possible due to the 
building's greatly deteriorated state, which she described 
Funds for renovation have not been available. 




Discussion occurred regarding various ways of getting 
funding. Tom Thornton, Earthquake Damage Coordinator for 
the Department of Public Works, noted that FEMA monies will 
likely not be forthcoming. He stated that DPW recommends 
the AC hire a consultant to help decide what to do. 
Commissioner Kriken requested that the Committee be provided 
with the status of historic classification of the structure. 

Director Isaacs stated that the AC must repay the Bureau of 
Building Inspection $15,000.00 for their initial emergency 
repair, and will need a supplemental to do so. 

Mark Primeau of the Bureau of Architecture stated that the 
building qualifies for funding for an engineering study, if 
an upcoming bond issue passes. This would cover earthquake 
repair, not a total seismic upgrade. 



CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 2 04/16/90 



1. NEW BUSINESS (Continued) 

Director Isaacs recommended that the Committee — and as 
many other Commissioners as possible -- tour the building 
soon, to become familiar with its condition. 

Some further discussion occurred concerning the building's 
future as related to continuing AC involvement with it, 
and how to proceed with renovation. Discussion concluded 
with consensus that the project would have to go to bid. 

The regular order of the Agenda was resumed. 

DPW - ARCHITECTURE 

2. NEW SHERIFF'S BUILDING/425 7TH STREET 
Schematic Design Review 

Greg Williams/Williams & Tanaka 

Mr. Williams described the site proposed for the new 
facility, the relationship of the new structure to the old 
one, and presented drawings and photographs. In contrast to 
the block-shaped more traditional older building, the new 
one will be a penoctagon shape. 

He described three primary, programmatic elements of the new 
structure : 

a. Intake/release center for both the Sheriff's Office 
and the Police Department; 

b. forensic services facilities for the Medical/ 
Psychiatric group associated with the Sheriff's 
Department; 

c. work furlough inmate housing at different levels 
with an eventual capacity to house 300. 

He stated that the proposed 270 degree supervision scheme 
will be much less costly to operate than the linear 
intermittent supervision scheme of the old building. Mr. 
Williams described the advantages of the new modular system. 

Cross-sectional drawings were presented and described. Each 
level of the building corresponds to the one directly across 
from it in the existing Hall of Justice. Mr. Williams 
described the functiorns of each level of the new building: 

Below grade - parking garage 

First Level - inmate intake 

Second Level - housing 

Third Level - sheltered housing/medical infirmary/primary 

medical-psychiatric clinic 
Fourth Level - kitchen/laundry facility 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 3 04/16/90 



2. SHERIFF'S BUILDING (Continued) 

Considerable discussion concerned the building's continuous 
exterior glass wall, the interior slotted wall, and the 
interstitial space. 

The rationale was given by Mr. Williams: 

a. This space allows service of the mechanical systems 
from the back of the cell without entering the security 
area of the housing unit; 

b. An exterior skin on the building does not place the 
five inch vertical slot directly on the surface, 
thus avoiding the visual iconography of "the jail"; 

c. the amount of glazing has a specific purpose of getting 
as much light as possible into the interstitial space 
to then transfer into the housing unit. 

Considerable discussion concerned the appropriateness of the 
wall in terms of iinage and maintenance. Possible 
alternatives were discussed. 

Commissioner Kriken noted the incongruity of the jail 
facility having an open, expansive, light-filled expression 
while the administrative offices have an opaque, fortress- 
like one, and stated that he found this troubling as a piece 
of public information. 

Recommendat i ons : 



a. The building's appearance should correspond to it's 
function. It should have an appropriate civic "look", 
and not be confused with a hotel, condo, or business 
park project. 

b. The building should be "honest to itself" and not 
merely a reflection of the high technology of the 
1990's. The second skin veils this honesty. 

c. The architectural expression of the roof grading of the 
new facility as it relates to the old one is nicely 
done. However, since future expansion must be upward, 
the commitment to three geometric forms presages three 
tall silos eventually looming over everything, negating 
the stepping down of the old roof to the new. 

d. Idea of putting an architecturally different building 
within the setting of the older one seems right. 

e. The designated back wall facing the administrative 
offices is not properly publicly positioned for art 
enri chment . 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 4 04/16/90 



2. SHERIFF' S BUILDING/Recommendations (Continued) 

Jill Manton responded that as the art enrichment budget 
will be substantial, this site will only be one of 
several, and not the main thrust of this program. 

Discussion occurred regarding art enrichment. The 
maximum allocation recommended by the Sheriff's 
Department is $600,000.00. 

f. Develop landscape further prior to Phase II, to soften 
the architecture, integrate the old and new, and 
mitigate the Basti 1 le- 1 i ke appearance. 

Phase I discussion was continued until the next Committee 
Meeting, subject to the above recommendations. 

3. RANDALL MUSEUM ENTRANCE CANOPY 

Item Deleted. 

4. RICHMOND DISTRICT POLICE STATION 
Peter Wong 

Mr. Wong addressed recommendations made by the Committee 
during Phase II, May 1989, and presented a site plan. This 
plan showed wheelchair ramp, open facade connecting two 
buildings, terra cotta tile entrance detail, and 
1 andscapi ng . 

He also showed materials samples for interior and exterior 
paving, and the Ground Floor Plan for the main building and 
rear bui 1 di ng . 

The Committee made the following conditional recommendation

6. WASHINGTON -HYDE MINI PARK 

Dennis Rumsey stated that at the request of "Jhe Committee 
for Better Parks and Recreation in Chinatown", this item had 
been pulled from the 2 April Consent Calendar, to allow them 
to examine Barcelon and Jang's final documents. Mr. Rumsey 
stated that he has spoken on the phone with Terry Ow-Wing of 
the Committee, and they are very satisfied. She requested 
that it again be put on the Consent Calendar. 

This item will be on the 7 May Consent Calendar: 

Motion to approve the Washington-Hyde Mini Park/ A 

Phase III 

The Committee requested that Mr. Rumsey view the redone 
drawing of the sign, "Washington-Hyde Mini Park" without the 
circle breaking up the lettering, to confirm that this 
recommendation has been carried out, prior to the 7 May 
meeti ng . 

7. UNFINISHED BUSINESS 

Robert LaRocca reported on the Yerba Buena Committee Meeting 
with the architect for the roof deck design, Mr. Jiurgola, a 
Planning Commission representative, and a citizens group. 
He described the current state of the park planning as 
conflicted between an urban versus a rural park setting. 

Commissioner Kriken expressed continuing concern, based on 
the scheme seen by Commissioner LaRocca, that the only way 
to get up to the park area is through the lower commercial 
area; so that the whole civic flow is directed up or down

Mr. Hunt described the building. The front brick facade 
its most architecturally significant feature. DPW/ 
Architecture's work will involve: 



1 s 



a. Handicapped accessibility 

b. seismic upgrade 

c. asbestos abatement (there is 



none ) 



Mr. Hunt stated that the remainder of the project involves 
reinforcing the front facade as little as possible without 
causing damage to it, visually. They will core down through 
the middle withe of the brick facade and insert steel 
reinforcing rods. Hand rails on the front of the building 
will be extended. A three foot opening will replace the two 
doors there now to make room for the handicapped 
coordinator. A variance cannot be obtained to leave these 
doors there.

Consensus: Unanimous 

MENTAL HEALTH SKILLED NURSING FACILITY 
SAN FRANCISCO GENERAL HOSPITAL 

Phyllis Harding, Project Director, stated that today's pre- 
sentation would address the four recommendations made by the 
Commi ttee : 

a. Discuss the art enrichment program in greater detail 

b. More detailed presentation of entrances/exits onto 
the site 

c. More detailed landscape presentation 

d. A diagrammatic aerial view of the site showing how it 
is situated within the entire campus. 

Rich Lowry presented Institutional Master Plan Drawings and 
described how the project sits within the entire site. 

Photos were also presented showing exterior elevations: the 
south elevation at the main entry and west elevation facing 
Potrero Avenue. 



Toni Babbas presented landscape drawings and described how 
the buildings will sit within the landscaping. She 
described a series of zones within the site: the freeway 
zone, where a buffer of trees will provide a privacy barrier 
between highway 101 and the patient quarters; the public 
zone which faces Potrero Street; the southern zone which 
makes the transition from the campus back to the hospital; 
and two private patient courtyards. 

She stated that the goal will be maintenance free, self- 
sustaining, long-lived vegetation. 

Ms. Babbas stated that the site will be heavily graded. A 
drawing was presented and described showing a sectional 
elevation through the site. 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 3 05/21/90 

3. MENTAL HEALTH SKILLED NURSING FACILITY (Continued) 

The wall encircling the facility will be about 12 feet high, 
for security. It will be screened with vegetation and not 
visible from the freeway. The type of vegetation has not 
yet been determined. 

The building surfaces and the wall will be in a brick or 
cement plaster system. The budget does not allow for all 
brick. Discussion centered on how to match the new facility 
to the existing campus, and how to deal with lines of 
demarcation where the materials change. 

Considerable discussion occurred regarding the proposed 
parking lot. Commissioners stated that the parking, as 
currently planned, seems unfunctional because there are not 
enough ingress/egress lanes and back-up room. The architect 
responded that they are aware of this problem, but that the 
lot was designed to create the maximum parking stalls. 
Phyllis Harding responded that there has been considerable 
resistance to this facility on the part of hospital 
employees because it will eliminate 75 current parking spots 
and they dare not eliminate any more. 

Discussion returned to landscaping. Ms. Babbas stated, and 
Commissioners agreed, that landscaping on the older hospital 
site is not desirable to emulate, except for the evergreen 
trees. Landscaping for the Potrero Street side was 
described and discussed, with Ficus and Magnolia trees 
planned. 

The Landscape Planting Plan and Landscape Construction Plan 
drawings were presented. 

Susan Pontious briefly described the art enrichment portion 
of the project. She described the three program areas: 

a. Landscape/courtyard area

3. MENTAL HEALTH SKILLED NURSING FACILITY (Continued) 
Recommendat i ons : 

a. Change in building material from brick to stucco should 
not be visible from Potrero 

b. Present color and materials samples prior to final 
selection. 

4. PIONEER LOG CABIN RESTORATION 
Berry von Hungen Groth 

Mr. von Hungen Groth stated that this project will involve 
restoration and stabilization of the building, with very few 
changes. Today's presentation will be details of these 
changes and a brief discussion of art enrichment. 

A small storage space and handicapped restrooms will be 
added to the building. The pergola on the outside of the 
structure, lost over the years, will be replaced. 

Martha Clift presented interior design and art enrichment 
ideas. The original pictures and photographs will be given 
to the History Room at the Main Library. The original 
furniture is fragile, and may be given to the Oakland 
Museum. The original graphics and furnishings cannot remain 
inside the building because heavy use would likely destroy 
them rapidly. Copies of original photos will be placed 
within original frames, as part of the art enrichment 
proposal, and placed within the building. 

Ms. Clift showed samples of matting colors in red, blue, and 
creme. Some discussion involved the appropriateness of 
these colors. 

The current catering kitchen will be renovated. A color and 
materials scheme was presented. 

Ms. Clift stated that the present lighting fixtures, 
chandeliers, are unsafe and in deteriorated condition and 
would be more costly to fix than to replace. They will be 
replaced with arts and crafts type fixtures and wall 
sconces, which will bring more light into the building. A 
drawing was presented. 

The following recommendation was made for presentation to 
the full Commission on 4 June: 

Motion to approve the Pioneer Log Cabin Restor- APPROVED 

ation/Phases II, III. 

Moved: Bob LaRocca 
Consensus: Unanimous 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 5 05/21/90 

4. PIONEER LOG CABIN/Recommendations (Continued) 

a. Research colors of the Edwardian/Victorian period 

as alternative to the dulled blue and red for matting 
photographs . 

b. Reproductions of original photographs should be first 
rate, done by a photographer. 

5. MARINA MIDDLE SCHOOL/ "Earthquake Commemorative Plaque" 
Berry von Hungen Groth 

Mr. von Hungen Groth stated that this plaque will 
commemorate the significant role that the School played in 
the October 17, 1989 earthquake. It will be financed by 
contributions from the community and all over the United 
States, amounting to about $400.00. The plaque will be on 
the entrance platform, next to the auditorium. A drawing of 
the proposed plaque was presented, with a quote from John F. 
Kennedy, and the school's colors. 

After brief discussion, the following recommendation was 
made for presentation to the full Commission on 4 June: 

Motion to approve the Marina Middle School APPROVED 

"Earthquake Commemorative Plaque"/ 
Phases I, II, III. 

Moved: John Kriken 
Consensus: Unanimous 

Recommendati on : 

a. Enlarge the lettering on 'October 17, 1989'.

7. BUSH/POLK PARKING GARAGE/STAGE IIB DESIGN REVIEW 
Gordon H. Chong and Associates 

Bob Riegel and Sam Nunes stated that today's presentation 
would address the garage's interior lighting and exterior 
materials and colors. 

The lighting layout has been redesigned to minimize the 
spillage of light into the surrounding neighborhood. The 
new scheme was described in detail and drawings were 
presented. Mr. Riegel stated that a computer analysis has 
shown the corners of the garage to be under-illuminated for 
safety. A light fixture will be installed there behind a 
panel, to illuminate these areas and contain light within 
the structure. 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 6 05/21/90 

7. BUSH/POLK PARKING GARAGE (Continued) 

A materials and color sample board was presented. However, 
the colors were lighter than they will appear on the 
building and lighter than those on the model. Some 
discussion occurred. 

The Polk Street facade, street landscaping, and art 
enrichment budget of $67,500.00, were also discussed. 

After brief discussion, the following recommendation was 
made for presentation to the full Commission on 4 June: 

Motion to approve the Bush/Polk Parking Garage/ APPROVED 

Stage IIB 

Moved: Robert LaRocca 
Consensus: Unanimous 

Recommendat i ons : 

a. Bring sample chart showing actual colors as they will

8. SAN ANTONIO PUMP STATION ADDITIONS/SOUTH ALAMEDA COUNTY 
Jim Wal Isten 

Mr. Wal Isten presented drawings and photos of the pump 
station. The project consists of adding onto a wing of the 
existing building, copying it brick for brick and thereby 
doubling its size, exactly. 

After brief discussion, the following recommendation was 
made for presentation to the full Commission on 4 June: 

Motion to approve the San Antonio Pump Station APPROVED

Waldemar Biernacinski 

Mr. Leon Atlas, representing Mr. Biernacinski, presented 
photographs of a stationary food concession cart which 
encroaches 18" onto the sidewalk from its nook on the front 
of the bui 1 di ng . 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 7 05/21/90 

9. ENCROACHMENT OF SHOP FRONT (Continued) 

Some discussion occurred concerning the exact encroachment 
of the cart and the design and materials in the cart, as 
presented in the drawing and photograph. 

This matter was continued until the 18 June Committee 
Meeting and the following interim recommendations were made: 

a. Committee will get City Planning statement on 
positioning of the cart as it relates to other 
building entrances 

b. Redesign cart and use other materials, e.g. wood and 
gl ass . 

c. Address basic question of pedestrian traffic as it 
relates to the new building. 

10. ENCROACHMENT/8TH AND TOWNSEND STREET PLANTERS, FLAG POLES, 
IRRIGATED PLANTER AREAS 

Ted P. Maniatis 

Mr. Maniatis stated that this project will involve sidewalk 
improvements along 8th and Townsend Streets, for the San 
Francisco Fashion Center. He described the plan and showed 
a drawing. Six benches and several planters are proposed. 

After brief discussion. Commissioners agreed that the 
presentation was not detailed enough to make a 
recommendation to the full Commission. They requested a 
more complete presentation showing: 

a. The relationship between what is proposed for the 
sidewalk and the surrounding environment 

b. materials samples/elevations/plant materi al /color . 

This matter was continued until the June 18 Civic Design 
Review Committee meeting. 

RECREATION AND PARK DEPARTMENT 

11 . 24TH AND YORK MINI PARK IMPROVEMENTS 
Ron de Leon, Asst. Superintendent of 

Parks and Squares 

Mr. de Leon stated that this project represents requests 
from concerned neighborhood citizens and community groups 
for greater security in the Park, due to illegal drug 
activities in the play area at the rear. To mitigate these 
problems, they propose two modifications to the Park: 

a. A fence at the Park's front, still allowing public 

seating to remain open after dusk. The fence can be 
closed by the Police Department at dusk. The 
maintenance staff will open the gate in the morning. 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 8 05/21/90 

11. MINI PARK IMPRQVEMENTS/Recommendations (Continued) 

b. Modify the Inead on the lightstand at the rear play area 
to make it a spotlight directed down on the area, 
rather than a floodlight. 

After brief discussion about the curved configuration of the 
fence, and the proposed colors, the Committee made the 
following recommendation for presentation before the full 
Commission on 4 June: 

Motion to Approve the 24th and York Street Mini APPROVED 

Park Improvements/Phases I, II, III 

Recommendat i ons : 

a. The fence is not permanent, and may be removed when 
neighborhood conditions change for the better 

b. it will be painted several different colors, none of 
which will be black. 

DPW/ARCHITECTURE 

12. NEW SHERIFF'S FACILITY/RESUBMISSION/WILLIAMS AND TANAKA 
Greg Williams 

Mr. Williams stated that the presentation for Phase I 
approval is continuing today. The model of the proposed new 
facility, fitted into the setting of the older building, was 
presented, with two alternate facades covering the facade of 
the new building. One was rectilinear and one was curved. 

These were designed in response to the Planning Department 
recommendation to look at an alternate concept for the front 
of the building. These two facades were attached to the 
building and each, in turn, was discussed at length and in 
great detail by the Committee. 

Mr. Williams described the refinements in the glass, 
concrete and metal elements of the building, subsequent to 
recommendations of previous meetings. 

Dean Maoris, Director of City Planning, spoke in defense of 
the building design. He spoke to the way the building fits 
into the heirarchy of City buildings. He reiterated the 
Planning Department opinion that the building's facade 
should take a rectilinear form. 

The question was raised as to whether or not the 
rectilinear, as opposed to the curved facade, changes the 
function of the building. Mr, Williams responded that it 
does not change the function in any way, but does add about 
10,000 square feet in floor area to the building. 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 9 05/21/90 

12. NEW SHERIFF'S FACILITY RESUBMISSION (Continued) 

These points were touched upon during discussion: 

a. The rectilinear facade is less honest and should 
not be used to hide a circular form 

b. building should be recognizable as part of a 
governmental complex 

c. the facade should not represent an attempt to hide 
the building's function 

d. spraying the model grey to match the older building 
grey would make it fit into setting better 

e. the lower societal echelon of the building's 
inhabitants should not negate good architecture 

f. Halls of Justice have traditionally been exalted public 
buildings, the jail within notwithstanding 

g. The planning code states that irregular shapes should 
be reserved for buildings of civic significance 

h. there are extreme time constraints to get the project 

out to bid so as not to lose State funding 
i. the increased square footage added to the building 

with the rectilinear facade puts the cost over budget 
j. building should be special in that it takes away the 

curse of the 200 foot long wall of the existing Hall of 

Justice; the flatness of it. 
k. the building is exposed to the City; it has a very high 

visibility and should be of exceptional quality 
1. simplicity of form gives strength to the whole, and 

this strength is inherent in the simplicity and 

straightforwardness of the curvilinear design. 

Commissioner Kriken stated that perhaps consensus would be 
possible if more design effort were put into the rectilinear 
scheme. He suggested scheduling a joint Arts Commission/ 
Planning Commission meeting for informal discussion. 

This matter was continued until a joint meeting between the 
two Commissions could be scheduled in the very near future. 

13. UNFINISHED BUSINESS 
None. 

14. NEW BUSINESS

There being no further business, the Committee adjourned at

MINUTES OF DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE MEETING 
r;^ MAY 25, 1990 

A Special meeting of the Design Review Committee was held on 
May 25, 1990 to continue the discussion of Phase I approval 
of the New Sheriff's Facility. This meeting was originally 
noticed as a joint meeting between Design Review and the 
Planning Commission, but the Planning Commission members 
were unable to attend on such short notice. The meeting was 
called to order at 4:15 p.m. 

Committee Members Present: 

John Kriken (Chairman) 

Anne Healy 

Robert LaRocca 

Rai Okamoto (arrived 4:25 p.m.) 

Staff Present: 

Clair Isaacs, Director of the San Francisco Arts 

Commission 
Susan Pontious, Art Enrichment Curator and acting 

secretary for the meeting. 



NEW SHERIFF'S FACILITY: PHASE I 

Clair Isaacs reported that she had spoken to George 
Williams, Assistant Director for Planning. He said he was 
unable to assemble the planning commission for this meeting 
on such short notice. He requested that the Design Review 
Committee post-pone acting until the Planning Commission 
meets so that the Design Review Committee would have the 
benefit of the Planning Commission's input before making 
their decision. 

Lu Blazej , Chief of Project Review for the Planning Dept . , 
addressed the Committee and asked that they defer their 
decision until they hear Planning ' s opinion. 

Anne Healy requested a vote. 

Lt . LaVigne from the Sheriff's department testified that 
preliminary cost estimates for changing to a rectilinear 
design would increase the costs for materials and labor by 
$650,000. Redesign costs would be additional. He stated 
that the project cannot withstand that kind of cost increase 
and urged adoption of a more efficient and cost effective 
design. 

Commissioner LaRocca, in his statement concerning the 
project stated that he felt that the original, curvilinear 
design was the most architecturally honest. He stated that 
he did not feel that the design "glorified a jail", rather 
that the building should be seen as part of the Hall of 
Justice, which has a jail in it. He feels that this new 



building will help provide the Hall of Justice with a new 
image, and that he didn't feel that the people confined in 
the new building should be demeaned by lesser architecture. 
He said that he didn't want to see the building being overly 
"glitzy", that it should have the appropriate civic quality. 
He requested that in use materials and color it be closer to 
the Hall of Justice. 

Commissioner Healy said that she felt that the original 
curvilinear design was a very architecturally honest 
solution, one that contrasted positively with the rigid, 
penal quality of the existing building. She felt that it 
levitated the space in a way that people would appreciate. 
She felt that the design was true to the building's function 
without broadcasting that function. It related to the 
neighborhood in scale and design. 

She also stated that as Chair of the Visual Arts Committee, 
she was very excited to have three outstanding artists 
selected to work with the architects, and that she was 
concerned that every delay encountered would limit their 
ability to interact effectively with the building. 

Commissioner Okamoto stated that he was in agreement with 
Commissioners LaRocca and Healy, and that he continued to 
support the curved form. He felt that it was an exciting 
image to present to the City. He stated that he didn't 
share the concern that the design grandized the jail. 
Instead it was a balance for the impact of the Hall of 
Justice, and the curvalinear form enclosed and completed the 
site. He felt that the contrast to the Hall of Justice was 
desirable, and that people who drove by would be impressed 
favorably. He felt that the use of glass block was 
reminiscent of the industrial buildings in the neighborhood. 

Commissioner Kriken stated that the committee was put in a 
difficult position in that there was a chance that the 
building's design doesn't conform to the City's master plan. 
This is difficult because the tremendous time pressure 
doesn't allow for looking at genuine alternatives. 

He said that there were two major ideas that the entire 
committee agreed with. 1) That the building in this 
location performs a valuable function by breaking down the 
scale of the Hall of Justice and 2)that there was something 
very important in its vertical scale in the way that it 
steps down from the Hall of Justice. 

However, he saw major problems. 

1. The use of glass: He was not convinced that an 
industrial glass wall is a reflection of the function of 
this building, and that there were opportunities for 



confusing the function of the building, 
didn't tie together as a civic place. 



He felt that it 



2. Precise use of curvilinear wall: the curved wall 
distinguishes itself too much from the Hall of Justice. He 
supports the Master Plan idea that distinguishes special 
places by architecture. In Phase II he would like to see a 
solution that linked the building to a larger whole. 

He stated that he wanted to correct an unfortunate 
impression that the original scheme was "too good" for the 
building's function. It is rather that he feels that the 
issues he raises are very important to the success of this 
building as a piece of civic architecture. 

Motion for Phase I approval: 

Commissioner LaRocca moved for Phase I approval for the 
design as presented by the project architects, taking into 
account Commissioner Kriken's comments. Commissioner Healey 

seconded . 



Vote : 

Ayes: Healey, LaRocca and Okamoto. 
Nay: Kriken

This site allows the monument to remain on Market with the 
already existing Victorian monuments which are located in 
different locations along Market Street. 

The next site identified was within the proposed Fulton

SPECIAL JOINT MEETING MINUTES/August 6, 1990 

I. PIONEER MONUMENT (CONT) 

Street Mall between the Asian Art Museum and the New 
Library. Specifically, the western half of the mall 
toward Larkin Street. 

Commissioner Boas identified two sites discussed at 
previous meetings. One being the southeast corner of 
Fulton and Larkin. This site would be considered if the 
Fulton Street Mall is not approved. The other site being 
an area of the Civic Center Plaza across from and 
centered on the entrance to the Civic auditorium. 

A motion which urges the Mayor to urge City Planning to 
include the site in their Environmental Impact Report was 
made by Commissioner Healy and seconded by Commissioner 
Mesa-Bains. It passed unanimously. 

II. FULTON STREET MALL GUIDELINES 

Chief Administrative Officer Rudy Nothenberg had forwarded 
to the Arts Commission for comment Urban Design Guidelines 
for the Proposed Fulton Mall . The Commissioners felt that 
the Fulton Street mall will complete an important design 
element of the Civic Center Plan and sited the AIA Study 
of the Civic Center and the Planning Commission's document 
of 1987 which both recommend this mall design concept. 

Commissioner Boas addressed questions to City Architect 
Norman Karasick and City Planner Calvin Malone concerning 
the Brooks Hall ramp. The ramp serve an important 
utilitarian function to Brooks Hall and will serve the 
future library as well. 

Commissioner Kriken requested that wording be added to the 
guidelines in regard to the ramp and any additional ramps. 
He advised that the nature of the edge treatment along the 
ramp should be incorporated into the landscape podium of 
the library. The ramp should be part of the base of the 
building with the landscape designed to diminish the 
visual impact of the utilitarian use of the ramp. 

The Commissioners also wanted language added that provided 
for following the Civic Center Master Plan in the addition 
and/or placement of monuments and statuary in the mall. 

A motion to endorse the Urban Design Guidelines with the 
addition of the commissioner's comments was made by 
Commissioner Healy, seconded by Commissioner Mesa-Bains 
and unanimously passed. 

At this time the public was invited to testify or comment. 
There was no comment from the public. (cont)

SPECIAL JOINT MEETING MINUTES/August 6, 1990 
III. Embarcadero Design Criteria 

Jill Manton explained the composition and process for the 
Embarcadero Design Team and her role at the meetings. 
Concern was expressed by the commissioners in how the 
information was being assembled in a piecemeal fashion 
with no overview of the design as a whole. Commissioner 
Kriken asked Ms. Manton to write a letter officially 
requesting the Embarcadero Design Team to make a 
presentation to the Civic Design Review Committee and to 
schedule a special meeting as soon as possible. 

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned 
at 3:10 PM. 

REPORTS AND ORDERS: 



1. Motion to urge the Mayor to urge City Planning to 
include in the Environmental Impact Report for the New 
Library Building investigation of four proposed sites for 
the relocation of the Pioneer Monument as listed in 
preference order: 1. United Nations Plaza on the Market 
Street side; 2. the western half of the proposed Fulton 
Street Mall; 3. the south east corner of Fulton and 
Larkin; 4. the Civic Center Plaza centered on the 
entrance to the Civic Auditorium. 

Motion: Anne Healy 
Consensus: Unanimous 

2. Motion to endorse the Urban Design Guidelines for the 
Proposed Fulton Street Mall with the request to add 
language concerning the visual treatment of the ramps on 
the street level and adherence to the Civic Center Master 
Plan in the placement or addition of monuments or statues,

DECORATIVE SIDEWALK LAMPS (4) AT #2 NEW MONTGOMERY 

Clark Pyle - O'Brien, Kreitzberg 

Michael Wilson - Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill 

Mr. Wilson described the project as an enhancement of the 
streetscape by placing two historical-style light fixtures, 
identical to those on Market Street, on either side of the 
entrance to the Sheraton Palace Hotel. The posts will be 12 
feet high, and the lamp will be 3 feet. Drawings were 
presented and there was brief discussion. 

Commissioner Kriken stated that, as a partner in Skidmore, 
Owings and Merrill, he would abstain from comment and 
voting. 

The following recommendation was made for presentation 
before the full Commission on 5 September:

3. MAIDEN LANE GATES 

Ed Brewer - Maiden Lane Association 

Mr. Brewer presented two drawings. The project will involve 
renovation of existing lightposts and installation of 4 low, 
ornamental and retractable steel gates at Maiden Lane 
between Stockton Street and Grant Avenue, and Grant Avenue 
and Kearny Street. The street will be closed from 11:00 
a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Mr. Brewer described the placement, 
design, surface treatment, color and maintenance of the 
gates. Some discussion ensued. 

The Committee made the following recommendation for 
presentation before the full Commission on 5 September: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the Maiden Lane Gates/Phase I A 

Moved: Robert LaRocca 
Consensus: Unanimous 

Recommendations Prior to Phase II, III approval: 

a. Show color samples. Prussian blue, blue black, and 
forest green were strongly preferred over black. 

b. Widen gate opening from 4* to 6*. 

c. Explore panels design within gate system to flow with 
top contour. Shape could be curved or rectilinear, but 
step down shape and placement shown in drawing is 
visually awkward. 

4. SHAKESPEARE GARDEN 
DPW/Bonnie Ng - Designer 

The project will involve redesign of a garden originally 
created in the 1930's by the California Native Plant 
Society. It will incorporate elements of an Elizabethan 
manor and plants as commemorated in Shakespeare's writings. 
Elements will include formal entrance and walkway; hedgerows 
to enhance illusion of enclosed, private garden, to 
accommodate wedding ceremonies and other seasonal events. 

Bonnie Ng described details of the project: 

Musk roses will be planted 

Keep existing hedgerows 

Old benches in topiary walls will remain 

new teak benches will be installed 

New gateway installed 

Enlargement of existing platform area 

Plaques installed on rear wall quoting from his plays 

Ancient Lebanese Cedar Tree remains, necessitating 

asymmetrical design of garden 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 3 08/20/90 



4. SHAKESPEARE GARDEN (Continued) 

Commissioner Okamoto arrived at 3:45 p.m., during brief 
discussion . 

The Committee made the following recommendation for 
presentation before the full Commission on 5 September: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the Shakespeare Garden/Phases I, A 

II, III. 

Moved: Robert LaRocca 
Consensus: Unanimous 

5. PRESIDIO BRANCH LIBRARY 

Seismic, Disability and Asbestos Abatement 
Glen Hunt 

Mr. Hunt described the project and presented drawings: 

a. Elevator upgrade: Access doesn't meet present code. 
An existing handicapped ramp will be added onto, 
involving new construction. 

b. Facade reinforcement: Core drilling of unreinforced 
masonry walls to a depth of 30' all around the building 
and install no. 11 rebar and polyester resin grout. 

c. Addition of Handicapped Handrails to building exterior. 

None of the repairs will be visible and no work will be done 
to the building's exterior. Some discussion ensued. 

The Committee made the following recommendation for 
presentation before the full Commission on 5 September: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the Presidio Branch Library A 

Seismic, disability, and asbestos abatement, 
Phases I, II, III. 

Moved: Anne Healy 
Consensus: Unanimous 

Recommendations Prior to Final Approval: 

a. Make new railing match the character of building and 
existing rail by adding detail which relates the new 
to the old. Because the original railings are in 
bronze, an exact replica will be too expensive -- there 
are 14 to consider — given the budget. Mitred joint/ 
round ball detailing was suggested. 

b. Show color samples compatible with existing building 
and existing bronze railings.

6. COMMERCIAL STREET OPEN SPACE 

Steven Vettel /Morrison & Foerster 
Andrew Butler - Project Architect 

Mr. Vettel gave background on this project. This proposal 
is part of the Open Space Requirement for the 235 Pine 
Street Office building project which is nearing completion. 
As there was no open space opportunity directly on this 
small site, they may go off-site. Commercial Street is 
identified in the downtown plan as a service alley 
appropriate for a pedestrian walkway, closed to vehicle 
traffic from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. This project will 
involve the 500 block between Sansome and Montgomery 
streets. 

It will involve four sidewalk widenings, e.g. bulbs, and 
installation of street furniture. The paving will utilize a 
two- tone concrete. The curb, gutter and bands will be a 
'natural' color concrete, with a darker sandblasted charcoal 
in the infill panels. The other major concrete component is 
the bulbs. He described street trees and furniture. 

Karen Ringlien of 235 Pine Street Associates presented an 
art enrichment proposal; a ceramic tile-covered teepee 
shaped sculpture with folkloric imagery by artist Joan 
Brown. After brief discussion, this portion of the project 
was referred to the Visual Arts Committee as the appropriate 
venue for further discussion. 

All fixtures except the fixed furniture have previously been 
approved by the Arts Commission in the 600 Block. This plan 
calls for some fixed street furniture and some moveable. 

Considerable discussion occurred regarding the fixed 
funiture. Commissioners favored sculptural bollards easy to 
sit on, without the 'fast food' connotation of empty fixed 
tables and chairs. Since heaviest use is at lunchtime, 
there is no need for them 24 hours a day. It lacks 
urbanity. Alternatives were suggested. 

Brief discussion concerned the red flowering gum trees. 

The following recommendation was made for presentation to 
the full Commission on 5 September: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the Commercial Street Open Space, A 

Phases I, II, III. 

Moved: Robert LaRocca 
Consensus: Unanimous 

Recommendation prior to final approval: 

a. The seating furniture must be re-evaluated. Return 
with alternate solution. 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 5 08/20/90 



6. COMMERCIAL STREET (Continued) 

Commissioner Kriken confirmed that the art enrichment 
portion need be approved by the Visual Arts Committee only. 
Another appearance before Civic Design for this particular 
project will not be necessary. 

7. BART/MARKET STREET STATIONS 
Entrance Enclosures 

Richard Wenzel - BART Access Engineering Manager 
Robert Engle - BART 

Mr. Engle restated the recommendations made by the Committee 
during the initial presentation of this project; to come up 
with a spirited design complementary to the architecture of 
Market Street. He showed slides of various transit system 
entrance canopies around the world and slides of Market 
Street, briefly stating issues and urban design problems 
involved in this project: 

Avoid 'international design' 

avoid Victorian design 

respect artistic character of Market Street 

reflect the changing character of the neighborhoods 

structure itself should be a work of art 

structure should be open and transparent 

design should be assymetrical 

identify BART readily as opposed to MUNI -- the current 

graphics of the two do not work well together. 

distinctive appearance

integration with street furniture 

Art enrichment curator Jill Manton introduced Andrea 
Cochran, Topher Delaney, and Paul Kos of the Market Street 
Design Team. 

Five models were presented. Three had been shown earlier to 
the design consultants, and two were made later, 
incorporating comments. All five were presented and 
discussed: 

a. The rolldown door was strongly preferred by BART. 

b. Commissioners expressed concern that shadow patterns 
cast on stairs and escalators by the canopy's trusses 
and struts could be visually confusing, especially to 
people with limited vision. 

c. Commissioners preferred the design with the most 
pronounced curved canopy over the one with the less 
prounounced curve and the 3 rectilinear ones. 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 6 08/20/90 



7. BART (Continued) 

d. The curved design was seen as more simpatico with 
renaissance-style and baroque architecture up and down 
the street. 

e. The curved design better lends itself to artist- 
designed grillwork on the rolldown gate, as the artwork 
will not have to compete visually with gridwork of the 
rectilinear canopy. 

Some discussion of the artwork occurred. Mr. Wenzel stated 
that the grill design panel would have a unique design from 
station to station. Commissioners felt that all surfaces 
should be examined for art enrichment potential; etched 
glasswork could be done on the side panels, and there is a 
great deal of glazing in the roof surfaces. 

Mr. Wenzel stated that the project is funded through design 
only. Building money has yet to be obtained. Originally 
budgeted at $8,000,000.00, the costs will easily be more 
than double this amount, system-wide. 

The Committee made the following recommendation for 
presentation before the full Commission on 5 September: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the BART Market Street Stations A 

entrance enclosures/Phase I. 

Recommendations for Phase II presentation: 

a. A graphics presentation should be made with the same 
sort of artistic intentions. 

b. Bring back both rectilinear and curved models at next 
phase, to be seen with the graphics, even though at 
this stage Commissioners prefer the curve. 

c. Bring materials and color samples. 

For the record, Commissioner Kriken clarified that Phase I 
is concept approval. Phase II is design development, and 
Phase III is construction documents approval. 

The Committee wished to have a special meeting to consider 
this project exclusively, and this will be arranged in the 
near future. 

8. BUSH/POLK PARKING GARAGE - STAGE III DESIGN REVIEW

Mr. Chong's presentation addressed the Committee's previous 
recommendati ons : 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 7 08/20/90 



8. BUSH/POLK (Continued) 

a. The center balcony's scale has been reduced from 5' 
projection to 3 ' . 

b. The teal green and sienna red surface colors have been 
deepened and an ivory color was added. Samples were 
presented. 

After brief discussion, the Committee made the following 
recommendation for presentation before the full Commission 
on 5 September: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the Bush/Polk Parking Garage design A 

review/Phase III. 

Recommendat i ons : 

a. Commissioners will make a site visit to give final 

approval to the surface colors when brushed on. They 
were primarily concerned about the appearance of the 
ivory on the trim. 

9. SHERIFF'S FACILITY (NEW)/DESIGN DEVELOPMENT 
Greg Williams - Williams and Tanaka 
Patricia Lock - Williams and Tanaka 

Greg Williams presented drawings, a new building model, and 
pointed out some of the architectural refinements to the 
building since the Phase I presentation. He also presented 
materials samples and spoke about them. 

a. A notch appears at the top of the building on the 
fifth floor, partly due to a budget restriction on the 
project and also is a means of dealing with the bulk 
restriction. Above 60' in height, they are limited to 
a maximum 250' face or 300' diagonal. The portion 
occurring above 60' stays within the bulk restrictions, 
allowing them to avoid the conditional use permit, and 
to complete the project in time to use state funds. 

b. The new model shows the effects of artists' ideas on 
the building. There is a ceramic fritted glazed front 
across the housing unit levels. A perforated metal 
moire screen shields mechanical components on top of 
the building; two heliostats mount the top of the 
skylights. The moire screen will also serve as a 
roof over parking area at the front of the building. 

On the rear wall is a metal skin and reflective glazing 
system. 

c. The materials palette has been refined. A limestone 
panel will be on the base of the building and on towers 
at the rear. The fritted ceramic glass will cover the 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 8 08/20/90 

9. SHERIFF'S FACILITY (Continued) 

facade and wrap around on the sides. A glass block 
will be used on the tower and on its crowning element. 
A combination of metal cap, limestone panel, and steel 
panel glazing system will be used on the rear. 

d. Two types of elevation drawings were presented for two 
proposed schemes. Scheme A incorporates artists' ideas 
and Scheme B carries the face frame concept without art 
enrichment ideas. This thin vertical metal element 
would cover the facade of the building, restoring a 
vertical emphasis. This scheme originated with the 
Planning Commission. 

Discussion occurred regarding all of the above. 

Commissioners particularly disliked the notch and wished to 
know if its exact location was necessarily fixed in the 
particular place on the model. Mr. Williams stated that the 
larger portion carries the food service and laundry 
components, and the smaller one carries only a conference 
room, reading room, and stair tower. An outdoor employee 
eating area has been proposed for the notch area. 

Scheme A - Artists' Concepts: 

Art Enrichment Curator Susan Pontious introduced the artists 
Vicki Scuri and Carl Cheng, who each presented their 
concepts. Mr. Cheng's partner, Doug Mollis, was out of 
town . 

Carl Cheng: 

Mr. Cheng present drawings of the frit pattern and the 
screen for the roof. The frit is a ceramic glazing 
technique that is silkscreened and baked onto the glass in a 
gradation pattern. By graduating the frit screen from top 
to bottom, a band is created that hides both the ceiling 
ducts and vertical pipes, while also allowing for 
transparency in the center of the glass panels. Interior 
lighting will make the frit pattern read effectively at 
night. 

Mr. Cheng presented a small model of the moire screen 
material for the roof. He described how the heliostats on 
the skylights will throw more light into the space. 

He described how the surface treatment on the wouth wall 
will affect various groups of people in the building who are 
looking out, and the effect that will be seen by those in 
the adjacent building looking across at the new building. 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 9 08/20/90 

9. SHERIFF'S FACILITY (Continued) 

Vicki Scuri - Artist 

Pat O'Brien - Landscape Architect: 

Ms. Scuri and Ms. O'Brien described the art enrichment for 
the entry plaza and the landscape plan for this area. They 
described a concrete 'throwrug' that will embrace both the 
interior and exterior space, pulling them together. They 
showed a drawing, a model, and wheat-colored and blue 
concrete samples. The paving pattern is in a sheriff's 
star, ascribing a low-maintenance fabric to the area. The 
tiles will be flush and polished in the interior area. The 
area may also receive real rugs, if desired, e.g. under the 
conference table. Some discussion occurred regarding 
materials, construction, and landscaping. 

Mr. Williams then clarified the Scheme B concept, which 
gives a different vocabulary to the building. It carries 
the face frame across the front facade and the south wall. 
He described this system in detail and presented drawings. 
It would cost about $350,000.00 more than Scheme A. It 
would also eliminate Carl Cheng's design for the south 
facade and Doug Hoi lis' fritted glass design for the north 
facade. It would also impact Hoi lis' design for the 
screening on the roof. 

Discussion occurred regarding the two proposed Schemes and 
the overall design development: 

a. Scheme B would give more vertical emphasis to the 
building, favored by the Planning Department. 

b. Scheme A gives major qualities to the glass across a 
very large area. It makes it distinct from other 
building types. Commissioners wished to see this 
idea further simulated in three dimensions before 
actual construction begins. Susan Pontious confirmed 
that this is in the plan. 

c. Commissioners and architects all agreed that the roof 
notch diminishes everything the Arts Commission is 
trying to do with this building. Erecting a screen 
across the front was proposed, to keep the visual 
continuity the building had previously. 

e. If the roofline continuity is broken, it disturbs all 
other spatial relationships in that area. The raked 
shapes played against something that organized them, 
with the unbroken line. If this is disturbed, 
something else must be found for them to play against. 
The roof treatment remains a major unresolved problem. 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 10 08/20/90 

9. SHERIFF'S FACILITY (Continued) 

d. It was suggested that the glare of the reflective glass 
at the building's rear may be excessive. Mr. Williams 
stated that Planning has hired a meteorologist to do a 
complete glare analysis of the building. 

e. The Scheme A treatment of the two facades is an 
outstanding example of a marriage between science and 
art. The art is part of the building, not simply an 
enhancement. 

Further art enrichment on the sheer walls of the cell units 
is in planning stages, and some brief discussion occurred. 

Discussion also occurred regarding the paving of the street 
curbs. 

f. If the notch area is to be used as a roof garden, a 
wall must be erected across the front to block out the 
wind currents. Otherwise, it will be a wind tunnel. 
Planning has stated that a 10' high wind screen may be 
placed there — without explicitly defining what this 
is — if it is an outdoor garden area. 

g. Commissioners strongly supported the artwork and 
materials. 

The Committee made the following recommendation for 
presentation before the full Commission on 5 September: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the Sheriff's Facility Design A 

Development/Phase II, conditional upon removal of 
the presented notch in the upper floors, which 
violates the integrity of the original concept as 
approved by the Arts Commission, and 

FURTHER MOVED, to recommend further study by the 
architect and by the Planning Department to come 
up with an alternate solution. 

Commissioners wished to schedule a special workshop when the 
mockups showing further art enrichment and design 
development are ready. 

10. VERBA BUENA GARDENS/PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE OVER HOWARD STREET 
Larry McEwen - M.G.A. Partners 

Bill Carney - Senior Landscape Architect 

Ed Ong - Chief Architect, Redevelopment Agency 

Bill Carney stated that today's presentation will involve 
approved schematic drawings, plus some refinements that have 
been done since the last workshop with the Committee. More 
workshops have been planned toward the end of September. 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 11 08/20/90 

10. VERBA BUENA GARDENS (Continued) 

Mr. Carney presented and described several drawings showing 
an overview of Central Block 2 (CB2) from Mission Street, of 
a park atop the block, and adjacent areas. A long esplanade 
is envisioned for performances as well as general park use. 
A performance area was along the left side, including a 
berned area contained trees and sculptural play features; 
and behind this two cultural buildings — a theatre and 
visual arts center. The area to the west slopes up into a 
retail complex being developed by Olympia and York. The 
centerpiece for this whole area is a fountain, which is also 
the back of the Moscone Expansion lobby. On top of the 
lobby is a garden terrace with a couple of cafes. He showed 
a more detailed sketch of the fountain. 

Mr. Carney switched to a plan view showing a more overall 
context of the park project. Another small garden will be 
on the Third Street side. On the Fourth Street side will be 
a restaurant, retail, and cinema complex which terraces up 
from the garden. A strong linkage to CB1 , the block between 
Mission and Market, will be created by a grade level retail 
promenade with vegetation that will be carried straight 
through and become a somewhat more formal allee, with 
changing vegetation, to draw people over to CBS, having 
Moscone meeting rooms, a children's complex, and an ice 
skating rink. 

A more detailed plan view of the long parklike area atop 
CB2 was again shown, described, and discussed in greater 
detail. Ways of getting people up to the Moscone Lobby were 
descri bed . 

Mr. Carney turned the presentation over to Larry McEwen, who 
continued to describe public walkways on CB2 . The 
pedestrian bridge over Howard Street and stairs alongside 
and leading down to Howard were discussed at length. 
Planting and building materials were also briefly described. 

Sidewalk paving samples were then presented and brief 
discussion of them took place: A grid will be the organizer 
of the many elements of paving throughout the park. The 
basic ingredients are green quartzite occurring in 2' wide 
bands, with an exposed seeded aggregate of sierra white 
granite. 

After lengthy discussion, Commissioners felt today's 
presentation was inadequate for a decision on Phase I to be 
made this evening. The following points were raised: 

a. The purpose of art enrichment is not to compensate for 
poorly resolved design problems. By designating 
possible sites in today's presentation, a certain kind 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 12 08/20/90 



10. YERBA BUENA GARDENS (Continued) 

of art is pre-supposed, e.g. the large wall alongside 
the staircase. This is not the best process of 
evolution of public art projects. 

b. The integration of the streetscape with the two 
Moscones will come largely through the art enrichment 
program. The art opportunity is the entire space 
between the two buildings. If a large wall must be 
treated, and there is a certain budget, a large part of 
that budget may have to go into the wall, as opposed to 
using it to integrate the entire space. 

c. The relationship between the two Moscone Centers and 
the streetscape should be clearly presented by up-to- 
date, comprehensive drawings and models reflecting all 
recommendations made up to now, before further 
discussion can take place. The entire scheme should be 
presented in one consistent drawing, showing the 
project in its entirety. 

d. Tonight's presentation will stay in workshop format. 
There is too much to take in. A special workshop must 
be scheduled to deal with this project. 

e. The method of paving and seeding is not adequate. A 
third concrete element is needed with the sierra 
granite and quartzite. 

f. While this is out of the archi tects' jurisdiction , the 
paving pattern in the central auto drop-off plaza 
should be something richer. These 8 lanes connect the 
two Moscones. 

g. A model is is needed to "walk through" the basic path 
structure . 

h. The concept of the bridge over Howard Street is fine, 
but the method of approach is not clear and a model 
would help clarify this. If Phase I approval were 
given tonight, and things move too far along into the 
construction document phase, this committee will have 
lost its ability to influence the design in any way. 
Approval cannot be given solely on the basis of 
tonight's schematic drawings. 

Commissioners and architects agreed to meet in late 
September to consider Phases I and II, with design 
development drawings and a model.

III. PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION 

Water Department's San Andreas Water Treatment Plant 
Stage-2 Additions 

As described in detail during the Phase I presentation, the 
purpose of this project is to increase the Plant's water 
treatment capacity by 50 percent. Two new poured concrete 
structures, an Ozone Building and an adjacent Contractor 
Basin, will be constructed. Working drawings were presented 
and briefly discussed. 

The following recommendation was made for presentation 
before the full Commission on 1 October: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the PUC San Andreas Water Treatment A 

Plant Stage-2 Additions/Phases II, III.

Consensus: Unanimous 

IV. DPW. BUREAU OF ARCHITECTURE 
JANET CLARK MEMORIAL PLAQUE 

Berry von hungen Groth, Bureau of Architecture 
Ellen L. Rice, Community Access Network 

Mr. von hungen Groth briefly described the late Janet 
Clark's pioneering work on behalf of building access for the 
disabled and introduced Ellen Rice, who is continuing Ms. 
Clark's work. 

Today's presentation involves two proposed schemes for a 
tribute to be located at the 101 Grove Street ramp: 

1. A two-color inlay terrazzo panel right at the ramp's 
entrance. 

2. A bronze plaque to be located at the ramp's entrance 
on the building wall. 

Drawings and wording for both proposals were presented and 
discussed. The bronze plaque would cost about $1,000.00 and 
the terrazzo inlay would cost about $2,500.00. Funding has 
yet to be secured. 

The following recommendation was made for presentation 
before the full Commission on 1 October: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the Janet Clark Memorial plaque A 

scheme 1 terrazzo two-color inlay panel/Phases I, II, III. 

Moved: Robert LaRocca 
Consensus: Unanimous 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 3 09/17/90 

IV. JANET CLARK MEMORIAL PLAQUE (Continued) 

Recommendation: Should sufficient funding be unavailable 
for this terrazzo Scheme, the Commission would endorse 
Scheme 2, the bronze plaque. This Motion is passed without 
prejudice. 

The Commissioners unanimously agreed to place the following 
item on the Agenda: 

V. MAIDEN LANE GATES 
Gate Design 
Edward Brewer 

The presentation addressed recommendations made at the 
August Civic Design Committee Meeting: 

1. Redesign of the gate panel making the sloping element 
more graceful . 

2. Setting gate opening wider than 4 feet to 4 feet 9 
inches. A small pick-up truck is five feet across. It 
must therefore stay under 5 feet. 

3. Color samples of satin black and gray were shown, and a 
combination of these two was suggested. As requested, 
Prussian blue and dark green were also shown. 

Some discussion occurred regarding the colors, which 
Commissioners felt to be too dark, monochromatic, and 
indistinguishable from each other. 

The following recommendation was made for presentation 
before the full Commission on 1 October: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the Maiden Lane Gates construction A 

elements/Phases II, III 

Moved: Anne Healy 
Consensus: Unanimous 

Recommendati on : 



Consult with Victorian house painters about a Prussian blue 
and deep Victorian green and get some samples from them. 
British Racing Green was suggested. Bring back better color 
samples to the October 1 Regular Meeting and the colors can 
be approved at that time. 

VI. UNFINISHED BUSINESS 

Claire Isaacs stated that a special meeting for the new 
library/Phase I design presentation has been requested prior 
to the October 1 Regular Monthly Meeting. 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 4 09/17/90 



VI. UNFINISHED BUSINESS (Continued) 

Committee Members agreed to meet for a special Civic Design 
Review Meeting at either 1:30 p.m. or 2:00 p.m., just prior 
to the Regular Meeting, on October 1. 

Claire Isaacs stated that she would telephone City Architect 
Norman Karasick as to whether 1:30 p.m. or 2:00 p.m. was a 
better time for this presentation, and how long it would 
take, and get back to the Committee members with a firm 
time.

Norman Karasick, City Architect 

Mr. Karasick introduced architects James Freed, of Pei , 
Cobb, Freed and Partners, and Kathy Simon, of Simon, Martin, 
Vegue, Winkelstein and Morris, who gave the presentation. 

Slides were shown and a site analysis was given. 

Two models were presented: One of the building only, and 
one showing the building situated in the environment. 

Slides were shown of the model's interior, and the library's 
functions were described, floor by floor. 

Relocation of the Pioneer Monument, currently in its 
original location on the corner of Hyde and Grove Streets, 
was discussed and slides were shown. 

Mr. Freed noted that the three types of granite proposed for 
the surface of the new building are identical to those used

on the old one. The Fulton and Larkin Street facades of the 
new building mirror the Beaux Arts style of the older 
structure. 

He briefly described the entrances on Fulton and Larkin 
Streets. 

Discussion occurred, with Commissioners unanimous in their 
enthusiasm for this new building, and the following comments 
were expressed: 

a. The library fits beautifully into the Beaux Arts 
style of the greater Civic Center. 

b. The Fulton Street stairs design option will remain 
open, awaiting an indication from the Asian Art Museum 
as to their plans for the Fulton Street facade in the 
old building, which will mirror the new one. Mr. Freed 
urged the Arts Commission to ascertain these plans from 
the Asian as soon as possible, so that this new facade 
may begin to assume definite proportions. 

c. The experience of moving through the building, in terms 
of the volumes of space and the handling of the light 
penetrating into the building, will make it very 
popular and will attract new customers. 

d. The building answers all of the extremely complex and 
difficult built in programmatic needs and still 
remains a beautifully designed public space. 

e. The building addresses the Beaux Arts Civic Center 
design with two facades, and addresses the Market 
Street side with the other two in a different way, 
without losing any of the continuity of sophistication 
and brilliance. 

f. The selection of materials reinforces the elegance and 
design concept of the building. 

g. Commissioners unanimously went on record in support of 
moving the Pioneer Monument in favor of the building. 

Some further discussion occurred. 

The question was raised as to whether, regarding the 
internal program of the building, everything is settled in 
terms of room type, floor level, etc. throughout the 
building. Ms. Simon responded that the functions of the 
floors are set, e.g. level one is for children, levels two, 
three, and four are adult levels, and level five is

administration. However, the flow of information will occur 
throughout the building. 

City Librarian Kenneth Dowlin stated that the Program 
Document for the new library is the product of six months' 
research, articulating what the building needs to do from a 
programmatic standpoint. 

The following recommendation was made for presentation to 
the full Commission at the Regular Monthly Meeting this 
afternoon: 

MOTION TO APPROVE the design concept of the new Main A 

Library/Phase I. 

Moved: Rai Okamoto 
Consensus: Unanimous 

III. FERRY TERMINAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM 
Joe Wyman, Port Authority Architect 

Jill Manton gave a brief report, preliminary to Mr. Wyman's 
presentation. The Port Commission has received funds from 
the Federal government to build an extension to the Ferry 
Building. The entire design process must be complete and 
all documents must be ready within six months, hence today's 
initial presentation. This project will be placed on the 
October 15 Civic Design Agenda for Phase I and II approval. 

Mr. Wyman stated that the project must be in operation by 
April 15. He provided Commissioners with a project 
description and a copy of the grant. The Federal Highway 
Administration money will be passed through to the Port by 
CalTrans. This is an emergency earthquake response project, 
relieving traffic from the East Bay. It is an interim 
facility to enhance ferry service. 

Today, guidance is sought from the Civic Design Review 
Committee that will enable the in-house staff of the Port 
Authority to design the facility. Suggestions are desired 
that could be integrated into the actual project. A 
preferred alternative must be fleshed out by November 1. 

Two options were presented and described. 

a. Pier 1/2 

A facility located on this Pier would entail the addition of 
new gangways and floats to accommodate two additional 
berths, construction of a passenger waiting area on an 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 4 10/01/90 



III. FERRY TERMINAL (Continued) 

existing parking lot, and possibly an automated ticketing 
facility. A portion of the improvement area would be set 
aside for a plaza/viewing area. 

b. Pier 1 Pro.iect 

A facility located on this Pier would duplicate the service 
provided immediately following the October Earthquake, with 
ferries docking along the northern stringer to protect 
passengers. A portion of the Bulkhead building could be 
refurbished to provide services needed for the facility such 
as ticketing and concessions. 

Discussion followed and the following points were raised: 

a. A conditional endorsement of the concept was given, 
pending indication of some commitment to providing 
artwork. No art funding is tied to the emergency 
money, about $1,000,000.00, which must be spent by 
April 15. 

b. This is a first phase of what will eventually be a 
permanent facility. After it is in place, art 
enrichment money can be found. However, Commissioners 
felt there should be an integrated expression of art 
when this project comes back for phase approval; that 
in the meantime an effort should be made to find art 
enrichment funding. 

c. Consider mixed use possibilities for the Open Space. 

d. The Port Authority's focus is on upgrade and 
improvement of the float system and upgrade of the 
passenger facility. 

e. Commissioners were not unanimous in approval of one 
project over another. 

f. They wanted an approach with maximum visibility. 

g. Give more activity to the outdoors. This will increase 
activity along the Embarcadero. Don't tuck people back 
behind a Pier. 

h. Some of the design features of Pier 7 could be brought 
to this, e.g. lighting, balustrades, colors. 

i. For the passenger facility, a simple steel structure 

with a corrugated tin or canvas roof picking up some of 
the arches from the Ferry Building was proposed. 
Commissioners preferred that the design pick up the

industrial character of the area. Canvas was seen as 
out of keeping with this. A simple, open, steel space 
frame structure, without arches, was preferred. 
Simplicity was preferred.

redwood fence which encroaches 48 inches onto the sidewalk 
along the 47th Street side. The sidewalk is approximately 
14 feet wide. This fence was already there when she bought

the building. This permit application is to legalize the 
fence, and give her right-of-way. She presented 
photographs of the surrounding area and a drawing. 

After some discussion, Commissioner Kriken requested that 
Ms. Jover bring photographs of the actual fence and the 
particular situation to the next Civic Design Meeting. He 
also requested that staff back check with DPW as to the 
concept of the revokable encroachment. 

This matter was continued until the next Civic Design 
Review Committee Meeting on November 19. 

IV. ENCROACHMENT/901 MARKET STREET 

DPW/Bureau of Engineering 
Jon Twichell 

This encroachment involves 10 blade signs over the sidewalk 
surrounding the Penney Building, advertising ground-level, 
retail tenants. Due to the combination of the fixed canopy 
and the grade change, the signs on the Market Street side 
of the building will be less than 10 feet above the 
sidewalk, necessitating a minor encroachment permit into 
the airspace. 

Mr. Twichell presented photos of the building's facade and 
sample blade signs. 

Following brief discussion, the following recommendation 
was made for presentation before the full Commission on 5 
November:

Ms. Manton read a portion of Chief Administrative Officer 
Rudy Nothenberg's Summary into the record: 

"I am most pleased to announce that, after further analyses 
of urban design policies by our consultants and our 
Technical Advisory Committee, the majority of the TAC now 
endorses the policies summarized in this letter. While not 
every agency represented on the TAC agrees with each and 
every one of the urban design recommendations, there is now 
sufficient consensus on the design package taken as a whole 
to proceed to the next steps of the approval process. 

"All the same, we must note that the proposed urban 
design/aesthetic policies add to a funding shortfall 
experienced by the Roadway. A resolution to all funding 
issues for the Surface Roadway Project will need to be 
fashioned by the Policy Steering Committee. The November 
meeting of the PSC will thus be devoted to a discussion of 
the funding needs of the Project, including the recommended 
urban design policies. 

"The following character and material selections represent 
the key urban design policies which have been endorsed by a 
majority of the TAC members and will be incorporated into 
the signed operations and design criteria document before 
it is signed. We anticipate that these key material 
selections will remain fairly fixed, subject to the formal 
approval process. As we move through the approval process, 
we plan to continue with design development drawings, based 
on the proposed urban design policies. The next steps in 
the urban design approval process include: 1) a briefing 
to the Arts Commission Civic Design Committee and Visual 
Art Committee for review and comment; 2) a briefing to the 
Port Commission; and 3) a briefing to the BCDC Design 
Review Board (The Design Review Board advises the BCDC 
staff and Commissioners as to whether projects meet the 
McAteer-Petri s Act and the Bay Plan.) 

"The urban design policies endorsed by TAC to date are 
summarized below: 

"Context/character: Historic, urban, working waterfront 

Landscaping: One row of trees on the land side. A few 
groups of trees placed in the center islands and the 
promenade, to accent transit or views. The precise 
location and spacing of the trees would be developed to the 
satisfaction of the TAC based on this policy 

promenade, sidewalk and crosswalk: Concrete, with granite 
curb at promenade, and concrete curb-and-gutter elsewhere 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 6 10/15/90 

XI. EMBARCADERO DISCUSSION (Continued) 

Roadway lanes and parking bays: Asphalt." 

Drawings were presented. Jill Manton described the process 
and clarified that the Arts Commission has a 'review and 
comment' jurisdiction only. Bechtel's contract was for a 
schematic design only, and design development will be 
conducted by DPW with oversight from an urban design 
consultant to be hired from the current RFQ. It will 
likely be done by an entirely different team. The working 
drawings will be done by DPW and will be ready by February 
for the southern Embarcadero segment. An urban design 
consultant will have oversight, to ensure compliance with 
the initial schematic design. Most likely, Rudy Nothenberg 
and Doug Wright will decide what portion of Roger Berry's 
Arts Master Plan is implemented and what the funding will 
be. 

Jill Manton stated her concern that the Civic Design Review 
Committee give constructive criticism in the most effective 
way, and that they try to achieve consensus in their 
response. 

Lengthy discussion revolved around the Commissioners' 
belief that these drawings conveyed no unified, overall 
design concept: 

1. The Committee was concerned about the reality of the 
implementation budget for the Waterfront 
Transportation Project. They were reluctant to 
comment on the design if budgetary restrictions might 
necessitate substitution of lesser materials without a 
reconsideration of the whole project. This is not the 
way to design a project — starting with a big idea, 
and as each piece of it falls apart, fill in with a 
cheap substitute material. 

2. This design is incompatible with the idea of a working 
waterfront. It is too elaborate, grandiose, and over 
desi gned . 

3. The drawings don't reflect some comments made 

in meetings. These are the same drawings from day 
one, e.g. a double row of trees was agreed upon 
several times, and yet the drawings show a single line 
of trees along the land side. 

4. The Port Commission would like to hear a unified 
statement from the Arts Commission as a whole, as 
opposed to different opinions from different 
individual members. However, the Commissioners felt 
they could not take a position on something that could 
be completely off base in terms of budget. 



MINUTES CIVIC DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE PAGE 7 10/15/90 



XI. EMBARCADERO DISCUSSION (Continued) 

5. Re the single luminaire on the roadside of the 

promenade: The Committee challenges the CalTrans 
standard of lighting as appropriate to such an 
important civic space. 

Jill Manton suggested that she could: 

1. draft a letter to Rudy Nothenberg expressing their 
concerns; 

2. try to set up an informal meeting involving Committee 
members and Rudy Nothenberg, and 

3. obtain more information about a larger meeting 
scheduled for October 24, with Rudy Nothenberg and the 
project's designers. 

Commissioner Kriken suggested as a public stance: The 
design process has not been responsive to the civic design 
opportunity that this presents, and the Arts Commission 
cannot yet endorse it. He further stated that the 
Commission may wish to withdraw from the design review 
process, since their authority is not binding, if they 
cannot support the design at present. 

Some more discussion occurred. Commissioner Kriken stated 
he would telephone Rudy Nothenberg about a meeting between 
himself and the Committee prior to Wednesday's meeting. 
Ideas for discussion were suggested. 

XII. NEW BUSINESS 

Debra Lehane announced that she will replace Dennis Rumsey 
as staff liaison to the Committee. She and Lemora Martin 
will share staffing responsibility. 

XIII. ADJOURNMENT 

There being no further business, the Committee adjourned at

MEETING CALLED TO ORDER: 



4:40 p.m. by John Kriken 



Commissioner Kriken stated that the purpose of the meeting 
was to review the Redevelopment Agency's Phase I & II design 
submittals in connection with the Verba Buena Gardens Esplanade 
project and specifically to see if the Art Commission's concerns raised 
in a previous meeting with the project's architects had been satisfied. 

Mr. Carney of the Redevelopment Agency gave a recap of 
preliminary construction document phase of work and of concerns 
raised by the Art Commission, including the progress of people 
through the esplanade between Market and Mission Streets and the 
Moscone Convention Center; access to the esplanade on Central Block 
2 from Central Block 1; and design of the retail project by Olympia & 
York adjacent to the Esplanade.

Minutes: 10/31/90

On behalf of MGA Partners, Fred Foote elaborated on 
refinements to the Esplanade project to address the Committee's 
concerns, using the project model and drawings. Specifics included 
refinements in the upper terrace area, reallignment of the Howard 
Street stairs, a greater presence of garden plantings along the stairs 
and at street level, development of the site signage system, increased 
screening of air intakes, and development of the garden character of 
the exit stair pavillions on Mission Street. 

Commissioner Kriken commented that MGA appeared to have 
met his concerns relating to the Esplanade walkway. 

Discussion followed relating to plantings on the wall at the base 

of the Howard Street stairs, with Mr. Foote indicating that the wall 

could be available to the Art Commission's Art Enhancement Program 
if desired, but would otherwise be planted. 

In response to the committee's questions, the architects 
described the planting scheme and cafes proposed for the new 
Moscone roof, including their appearance from Howard Street. The 
architects stated that the design intention is to thoroughly integrate 
these structures with the garden setting. 

Commissioner Okamoto questioned whether the Gardens would 
be affected by the retail development. Mr. Carney indicated that the 
developer's architects were just now beginning work. Two possible 
impacts were a request for retail activity within the Esplanade and 
the handling of the Marriott Ballroom vents and exit stairs. 

Commissioner Kriken stated his concern about the scale of the 
retail development and that the Fourth Street edge needs to be as 
friendly as possible. Commissioner Okamoto voiced his strong 
feelings against anything that would compromise the overall 
geometry of the park. 

Commissioner Okamoto questioned whether art elements will 
still be in the gardens. Mr. Giurgola described the basic concept for 



Minutes: 10/31/90 
Page 3 



the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial to be designed as part of the 
fountain. He emphasized the 'spiritual' connection between St. 
Patrick's Church and the memorial, and answered questions raised 
about visibility of the memorial from the Moscone Convention Center. 
The memorial is being designed by artist Houston Conwill. 

Commissioner Healy questioned where park benches will be 
placed, and a short discussion ensued on the possibility of vendors 
renting chairs to park users, as occcurs in some European parks. 

Mr. McEwen explained that the east stairway to the upper 
terrace was necessary as a direct route to the terrace, given the 
length of the east ramps. He also reviewed the design of the Howard 
Street Bridge and of the sidewalk trees and paving. The bridge 
design includes two support columns and a small area of stairs 
located within the public sidewalk area west of the south Moscone 
lobby; these require encroachment permits from the City, which will 
need to be signed off by the Art Commission. 

Commissioner Kriken stated that the Art Commission's concerns 
related to the Esplanade had been addressed. 

Commissioner Healy moved that the Committee recommend 
approval of Phase I and Phase H of the submittals relating to the 
Esplanade 

Commissioner Okamoto seconded the motion, provided that the 
subsequent retail development provide entrances from both Fourth 
Street corners; reflect the overall geometry of the esplanade; provide 
stepped back building profiles; retain the integrity of the park 
environment; avoid any erosion of the initerior edge of the 
promenade ellypse; provide continuous, active retail along Fourth 
Street;and keep the profile of the South Retail Building no higher 
than the lower portion of the Polshek theatre. 

The motion was unanimously approved. 

Mr. Carney thanked the Committee for convening for this 
meeting at the Agency.

Harry Leong of Asian Neighborhood Design requested 
permission to build a fence on city land along 25th St. 
The edge of the roadway has become a dumping area which 
causes the unwanted possessions to fall on A.N.D. property. 
It was also sited as a safety issue. 

The following recommendation was made for presentation 
before the full Commission on 10 December: 

Motion to approve the encroachment of a fence on 26th A 
Street along the roadway bordering A.N.D. property/ 
Phases I, II, III.

Consensus: Unanimous 

VII , Embarcadero Waterfront Pro.ject 

Peg Divine of the Chief Administrator's Office reviewed the 
Embarcadero Project with the Commissioners requesting 
feedback from them on the following items: 

Trees 

The Commissioners supported a double row of trees on the 
landside of the Embarcadero. In response to Ms. Divine's 
concern about obstructing pedestrian movements on the 
smaller 10 foot walkways, the Committee suggested 3 foot 
grates for trees. 

There was not agreement among the Commissioners regarding 
seaside tree locations. Commissioners Healy and Okamoto 
agreed to no trees on the seaside with light fixtures 
providing design continuity. Commissioner LaRocca voiced 
the desire for trees to be on both sides stating that it 
makes the environment more people oriented and provided 
design continuity. 

Ms. Divine suggested doing a model of some trees on 
the median and on the water side to show BCDC 
Commissioners. Ms. Divine also informed the Committee of a 
series of meeting with the Port sub-committee to discuss 
urban design issues. The Committee asked to be appraised of 
the schedule of the meetings. 

Lighting 

The Commissioners unanimously preferred the single 
luminaires on the promenade and recommended on the three 
block stretch from the Embarcadero to Northpoint that single 
luminaires be used on a 24' high pole to accommodate the 
catenary wires. Color corrected sodium vapor lights were 
recommended . 

Pavement 

The Bechtel consultant recommended concrete because of 

Page 3 



Minutes/Civic Design Review Committee/11/19/90 
Embarcadero (continued) 

concerns for patches which occur as a result of repair work. 
The consultant felt that asphalt was not an inviting 
material and identified a possible problem with subsidence 
on the promenade. 

The Civic Design Committee recommended asphalt over concrete 
for the promenade material with the crosswalks the same or 
slightly different. Commissioner LaRocca stated that he 
was not adverse to concrete paving and that the city should 
use a material which is readily repairable.
